Agenda Item #20


Title
2009-10 State Appropriated Equipment Assistance Grants for School Food Authorities (SFAs)

Discussion

On February 16, 2010, the Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) submitted an application for the 2009-10 State Appropriated Equipment Assistance Grants for School Food Authorities (SFAs) to the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE), Office of Grants Management, in the amount of $39,348.  As a reminder the original application came before the Board on February 23, 2010.  We are pleased to report that FNS was initially awarded $42,798 in funds.  The additional $3,450 awarded was due to a surplus which was a result of not all school districts applying for their portion of the $2,532,907 in available funds.  On April 13, 2010, FNS was notified by FLDOE that their award was amended to include an additional $2,197.23 due to another surplus of funds.  Therefore the final award is $44,995.23.  This award will be used towards the purchase of serving lines for Discovery and Columbia Elementary schools.  Per the requirements of the grant, these funds were obligated by April 15, 2010 and must expended by May 31, 2010.



Recommendation
Accept the 2009-10 State Appropriated Equipment Assistance Grants for School Food Authorities in the amount of $44,995.23.
