Income Eligibility forms for Fiscal Year 2011 are now posted on the Nutrition Services web site. See the Forms and Resources page.
Are your records available on site?
CACFP regulations require that your records be available for inspection on-site during your normal business hours. This means if you are visited by NDE Nutrition Services or USDA representatives and your records are not available on-site, an overclaim will be assessed for all months with missing records.
Child Care enrollment forms
Child care centers - are you remembering to have your enrollment forms updated annually? Every 12 months, you need to have parents review the information regarding usual days in care and usual times in care; make changes, if necessary; initial and date the form. Remember, the updating applies ONLY to enrollment forms. You must get NEW Income Eligibility forms (IEFs) every year.
