The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) is requesting a waiver of the new SFSP regulation requiring experienced sponsors not already participating in another Child Nutrition Program to submit a full Viability, Capability, and Accountability Checklist every three years at the time of SFSP application renewal.

The proposed waiver would extend through Summer 2023 TDA’s current SFSP application renewal process that does not require returning sponsors to submit a completed checklist. This waiver is being requested to allow time for requested TX-UNPS enhancements to the SFSP application to be implemented prior to Summer 2024.
