USDA/FNS RIN: 0584-AD94 Publication ID: Fall 2009 
Title: ●The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP): Amendments to Requirements Regarding the Submission of State Plans and Allowability of Certain Administrative Costs 
Abstract: Section 4201(b) of the recently enacted Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the Farm Bill) amends section 202A of the Emergency Food Assistance Act of 1983 (the Act) by making State plans permanent. Previously, the Act required TEFAP State agencies to submit operating plans to USDA for approval every four years. The language of section 4201(b) of the Farm Bill of 2008 is clear, leaving no room for discretion, and it makes program regulations at 7 CFR part 251.6(b) inconsistent with section 202A of the Act. Therefore, FNS is proposing a Final Rule that will amend 7 CFR part 251.6(b), thereby bringing it into compliance with the Act. Making State plans permanent will also decrease the administrative burden imposed on the States. Section 4201(b)(2) of the Farm Bill also amends section 204(a)(1) of the Act to specifically allow the use of TEFAP administrative funds to process donated wild game for distribution to program participants. Although the processing of donated wild game has long been an allowable administrative cost, the Act previously did not specifically identify it as such. The language of section 4201(c)(2) of the Farm Bill is unambiguous, leaving no room for interpretation. Including specific reference to the processing of donated wild game as an allowable us of TEFAP administrative funds in a Final Rule that will amend 7 CFR part 251.8(e) will clarify current policy.
