TDA has developed and released a new online form for disqualified operators wishing to be removed from the National Disqualified List and/or Texas Excluded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) List prior to the end of the required minimum seven years.

The Removal Request Form - National Disqualified List or Texas Excluded Summer Food Service Program (https://app.smartsheet.com/b/form/1003af3bef564479b0420e4f52b289b0) is located on the CACFP and Summer Meal Programs Administration/Forms pages and on the National Disqualified List/Texas Excluded SFSP List page located here

Note that due to the egregious nature of certain activities, TDA will not consider a request for early removal of an organization or individual who was disqualified for falsification of records, making false representations, making false claims, engaging in an unlawful practice, or any other activity indicating a lack of business integrity.

For disqualifications because of other serious deficiencies that do not indicate a lack of business integrity, organizations and individuals may submit a request to be removed from the NDL and/or TEXSL before the seven years have elapsed. However, note that:

• Submission of a request does not guarantee the request will be approved
• Denial of a request for early removal is not subject to appeal; and
• Approval of a request for early removal does not equal approval to participate in the CACFP, SFSP, or any other Child Nutrition Program. A new application for participation in the program must be submitted and processed in accordance with TDA’s application process.
