Nutrition Services Division Management Bulletin
Purpose: Policy, Beneficial Information

To: Child and Adult Care Food Program, Adult Care Agencies

Number: USDA-CACFP-20-2012

Attention: Food Program Director

Date: October 2012

Subject: Rescinding U.S. Department of Agriculture Policy Memoranda Relating to the Adult Day Care Component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program

Reference: U.S. Department of Agriculture Policy Memo CACFP 19-2012
http://www.fns.usda.gov/cacfp/policy

This Management Bulletin (MB) provides updated guidance relating to the adult day care component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Congress issued guidance relating to adult day care immediately following the addition of the adult day care component to CACFP. Since that time, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has incorporated much of the guidance into the CACFP regulations, thereby making the USDA memoranda obsolete. In addition, the USDA has changed some regulations related to adult day care agencies that are not reflected in previous guidance from USDA.

Background

The adult day care component of the CACFP was authorized by the Older Americans Act Amendments of 1987 and codified in Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 226.19(a).

    • Operational Memorandum 10—Retroactive Payments to Charitable Institutions, September 18, 1989
    • Operational Memorandum 13—Procurement Standards, September 19, 1989

Additionally, USDA Child Care Food Program Adult Day Care Provisions Operational Memorandum 2—Participation of Institutionalized Adults, March 15, 1989 was superseded by Operational Memorandum 2, Revision 1—Institutionalized Adults, September 15, 1989:

The remaining previous USDA memoranda related to the adult day care component of CACFP were consolidated, updated, and clarified by the following two memoranda:

  • Participant Eligibility in the Adult Day Care Component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program, August 7, 2012
  • Center Eligibility and Licensing/Approval in the Adult Day Care Component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program, August 7, 2012

The CDE has issued USDA-CACFP-19-2012 and USDA-CACFP-22-2012 to address the guidance in the above two new USDA policy memos. These MBs may be viewed on the CACFP MB Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/nu/cc/mb.asp.
