SBP Administration & Forms

TX-UNPS

SBP participants submit applications and file claims through the Texas Unified Nutrition Programs System: TX-UNPS.  If you are unable to use an Internet-based application such as TX-UNPS, please contact TDA.


Household Application Translations

USDA also provides translations for the household application used for NSLP, SBP, and SMP in over 30 languages. These translations are available at https://www.fns.usda.gov/school-meals/translated-applications.

You can also find USDA prototype household applications (examples) as well as sample instructional documentation at: https://www.fns.usda.gov/school-meals/applying-free-and-reduced-price-school-meals


Administrator’s Reference Manual (ARM) Update
TDA released a reorganized and updated ARM on August 12. Instead of 27 sections, there are now 37. This chart provides a list of ARM sections and topics for each section. Please use this chart to help you find the guidance you need.

PLEASE NOTE: The ARM contains state and regulatory guidance for standard operations. For deviations and flexibilities to standard NSLP operations as a result of COVID-19, please refer to the FAQs on the SquareMeals Coronavirus page for more information.
