Title: ●Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) Provisions of Title IV of Public Law 110-246 
Abstract: Title IV--Nutrition, PART III--PROGRAM OPERATIONS, Section 4111-Nutrition Education provision clarifies the legal basis and requirements for nutrition education in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This proposed rule would implement the requirement that SNAP State agencies that elect to provide nutrition education (SNAP-Ed) for individuals eligible for program benefits submit a nutrition education State plan to the Secretary for approval and that the State plan identifies the uses of funding for local projects, and conforms to standards established by the Secretary through regulations and guidance. This proposed rule codifies the SNAP-Ed Plan Guidance as the regulatory reference for States regarding the operation and implementation of nutrition education delivery as established in section 11 of the Food and Nutrition Act 2008 (7 U.S.C. 2020 (f)(3)(B)(ii)). The SNAP-Ed Plan Guidance sets forth what States must provide to apply for nutrition education funding, and also provides policy guidance on cost accounting, allowable cost(s), waivers, and data needs. The SNAP-Ed Plan Guidance assists States in developing a clear and comprehensive document for implementing a State Plan. Additionally, the Guidance is designed to provide: • A clear statement of policy regarding SNAP-Ed requirements; • Clear and concise information on existing nutrition education and promotion efforts, and on systems of program monitoring; and • A consistent strategy for evaluating the effectiveness of State SNAP-Ed efforts, as well as comprehensive approaches for measuring the impact of SNAP-Ed. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) promotes healthy eating and physical activity consistent with the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans published under section 301 of the National Nutrition Monitoring and Related Research Act of 1990 (7 U.S.C. 5341) to individuals eligible for SNAP benefits. SNAP State agencies may give SNAP-Ed directly to eligible persons or through agreements with the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, including through the expanded food and nutrition education program under section 3(d) of the Act of May 8, 1914 (7 U.S.C. 343(d)), and other State and community health and nutrition providers and organizations. As with any other SNAP administrative activity, SNAP-Ed expenditures may be reimbursed at 50 percent as established in section 16(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act 2008, which authorizes FNS to pay 50 percent of a State’s allowable administrative expenditures to operate the Program of which nutrition education is an allowable component. States submit an FNS-366A Budget Projection to project Federal funding needs. Currently 52 State agencies provide SNAP-Ed to program eligibles in all 50 States, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 2004, SNAP-Ed was provided to 82 percent of the counties across the country. In FY 2009 these 52 State agencies received approved Federal funding of approximately $343 million. This funding will provide nutrition education to eligible program recipients ensuring that SNAP eligibles have the knowledge, skills, and motivation needed to make healthy food and physical activity choices.
