USDA Food and Consumer Service:
Child and Adult Care Food Program-Improved Targeting of Day Care Home Reimbursements
OGC-97-15: Published: Jan 22, 1997. Publicly Released: Jan 22, 1997.
Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Consumer Service's new rule on day care home reimbursements. GAO found that: (1) the rule would establish a two-tiered reimbursement system for day care homes participating in the Child and Adult Care Food Program; (2) under the two-tier structure, the level of reimbursement for day care homes will be determined by assessing economic need on the basis of location of the day care home or income of the day care provider or on the basis of the household income of each participating child; and (3) USDA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
