Certification of Compliance With Meal Requirements for the 
National School Lunch Program Under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act 
of 2010; Approval of Information Collection Request

AGENCY: Food and Nutrition Service, USDA.

ACTION: Interim final rule; approval of information collection request.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Food and Nutrition Service published an interim final rule 
entitled ``Certification of Compliance with Meal Requirements for the 
National School Lunch Program under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act 
of 2010'' on April 27, 2012. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
cleared the associated information collection requirements (ICR) on 
June 20, 2012. This document announces approval of the ICR.

DATES: The ICR associated with the interim final rule published in the 
Federal Register on April 27, 2012 at 77 FR 25024 was approved by OMB 
on June 20, 2012, under OMB Control Number 0584-0567.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or 
copies of this information collection should be directed to Jon Garcia, 
Program Analysis and Monitoring Branch, Child Nutrition Division, 3101 
Park Center Drive, Alexandria, VA 22302.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The April 2012 interim final rule amended 
National School Lunch Program regulations to conform to requirements 
contained in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 regarding 
performance-based cash assistance for school food authorities (SFA) 
certified compliant with meal patterns and nutrition standards. The 
interim final rule requires State agencies to certify participating 
SFAs that are in compliance with meal pattern and nutrition standard 
requirements as eligible to receive performance-based cash assistance 
for each reimbursable lunch served (an additional six cents per lunch 
available beginning October 1, 2012 and adjusted annually thereafter). 
This rule also requires State agencies to disburse performance-based 
cash assistance to certified SFAs, and withhold the performance-based 
cash assistance if the SFA is determined to be out of compliance with 
meal pattern or nutrition standards during a subsequent administrative 
review. Comments on the associated ICR interim final rule were accepted 
until June 26, 2012. This document announces OMB's approval of the ICR 
under OMB Control Number 0584-0567.

    Dated: June 25, 2013.
Jeffrey J. Tribiano,
Acting Administrator, Food and Nutrition Service.
