SUBJECT:

Fiscal Year 2007 School Breakfast Program State Funding - Second Payment for 2005-2006 Participation

 

The General Assembly provided $892,020 in fiscal year 2007 to continue state funding for the school breakfast program as an incentive to increase the level of student participation. The fiscal year 2007 incentive payment is based upon 2005-2006 school year breakfast program participation data. The original fiscal year 2007 (FY07) appropriation was not sufficient to fully fund the incentive payment at $ 0.20 per meal to each school division. The Department of Education reimbursed school divisions at a pro-rated amount in October 2006.

 

Additional FY07 funds have been appropriated by the General Assembly to fully fund the incentive payments to school divisions. A second payment will be made to school divisions that earned incentive funding. The attached spreadsheet (Attachment A) shows, in the final column, the additional incentive payment that will be made to each school division.

The state breakfast incentive funds will be paid via electronic data interchange (EDI) on May 31, 2007. This payment will appear on the EDI notice as State School Breakfast Incentive Funds revenue source code 240347.

 

Funds received by school divisions pursuant to this program must be credited to the school nutrition program and may not be used for any other purpose. The school nutrition program financial reports submitted to the Department of Education will be monitored to determine compliance with this requirement.

 

Please direct questions regarding the school breakfast program incentive funding to Lynne Fellin, acting director of school nutrition programs, or the divisions assigned school nutrition specialist at (804) 225-2074.
