Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Department of Agriculture's (USDA) new rule governing child nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act amendments. GAO noted that: (1) the new rule would amend the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) to: (a) make administrative funds available to help eligible sponsoring organizations of family day care homes expand participation in CACFP in low-income and rural areas; (b) allow sponsors to use administrative funds to assist unlicensed day care homes in obtaining licensing; and (c) grant federally funded income-eligible Head Start children automatic eligibility for free CACFP meals, without further application or eligibility information; and (2) USDA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
