The USDA has transposed these legal requirements into Section 226.18 B of the Regulations. This section requires public authorities to develop a standard agreement between sponsors and FDCH or to approve an FDCH agreement drawn up by a sponsor. The regulations also provide that the agreement between sponsors and FDCHs is permanent and that the agreement includes a number of specific rights and obligations of each party. There are no regulatory requirements regarding the content or duration of agreements between agencies and sponsors for any type of institution other than the HDF. It also gives public authorities considerable leeway to define the content and duration of agreements between institutions (other than CSDs) and sponsors. Once a state agency has approved an agency`s application, an organizing organization can enter into an agreement with that agency and the institution may be reimbursed for meals served (NOTE: the conditions under which an institution can obtain a refund for meals served before its application is approved by the public authority are set out in a May 14 memorandum. 2001, which is attached to this memorandum). For FDCH and many sponsored centres, reaching an agreement is the final step in the approval process. The agreement often contains the approved application “as a reference,” so that the information presented in the application becomes an integral part of the legal agreement between the organizing body and the organization. Any FDCH wishing to participate in the CACFP must sign an agreement. An agreement is the legal contract allowing FDCH to participate in the CACFP, subject to the requirements of the program. No organization other than an FDCH is legally required to enter into an agreement with a sponsorship organization. However, in many cases, sponsors require institutions other than institutions to reach an agreement with the sponsor so that the rights and responsibilities of each party are clearly defined.
Any organization (whether it is FDCH or sponsored centre) that wishes to participate in the CACFP must first apply. An application of the program is intended to gather the necessary information from a public authority to determine whether an individual organization is both eligible and eligible. We find that there is some confusion about requests for facilities and agreements, in part because some see the application and agreement as a single program document, as opposed to two different documents. Although an approved application and agreement are required for the participation of a family home (FDCH), this memorandum treats the application and agreement separately in an attempt to avoid such confusion and to emphasize the specific purpose of each document. On the other hand, sponsors must receive immediately, in case of change. B, certain types of information from their institutions (e.g., changes in the authorisation or authorization of the establishment, working hours, meal times, type of meals, etc.) in order to carry out their administrative functions of monitoring and processing applications submitted by the institutions.
