National Institute of Food and Agriculture
Title: Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).
OMB Control Number: 0524-0044.
Summary of Collection: The Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP) is a unique program that began in 1969 and is designed to reach limited resource audiences, especially youth and families with young children. EFNEP operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and in American Samoa, Guam, Micronesia, Northern Marianas, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The objectives of EFNEP are to assist families and youth with limited resources in acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and changed behaviors necessary for nutritionally sound diets, and to contribute to their personal development and the improvement of the total family diet and nutritional well-being.
Need and Use of the Information: NIFA will collect information using Web-Based Nutrition Education Evaluation and Reporting System (WebNEERS), which is an integrated database system that stores information on: (1) Programmatic results: (A) Adult program participants, their family structure and dietary practices; (B) youth group participants; and (C) staff; and (2) programmatic plans (D) annual budget; and (E) annual program plans. Without the information it would be extremely difficult for the national office to compare, assess, and analyze the effectiveness and the impact of EFNEP without the annual collection of data.
