<b><a href=https://form.jotform.com/212794867706167 target="_blank">Help us provide the most useful data by completing our ODP User Feedback Survey for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Data</a></b><p>

<b>About the Dataset</b><br>

This data set contains claims information for <b> meal reimbursement for CACFP sites participating as emergency shelters for program year 2020-2021.</b> The CACFP program year begins October 1 and ends September 30. <p>

In March 2020, USDA began allowing flexibility in nutrition assistance program policy to support continued meal access should the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) impact meal service operation. For more information on the waivers implemented for this purpose, please visit our website at <a href=http://www.SquareMeals.org target=""_blank"">SquareMeals.org</a>. <p>

<b>This dataset only includes claims submitted by CACFP sites operating as emergency shelters.</b> Sites can participate in multiple CACFP sub-programs. For reimbursement data on CACFP participants operating as Day Care Homes, Adult Day Care Centers, Child Care Centers, At-Risk Child Care Centers, Head Start Centers, or centers providing care for students outside school hours, please refer to the corresponding “Child and Adult Care Food Programs (CACFP) – Meal Reimbursement” dataset for that sub-program available on the State of Texas Open Data Portal.

<b>About Dataset Updates</b><br>

TDA aims to post new program year data by December 15 of the active program year. <b>Participants have 60 days to file monthly reimbursement claims.</b> Dataset updates will occur monthly until 90 days after the close of the program year. After 90 days from the close of the program year, the dataset will be updated at six months and one year from the close of program year before becoming archived. Archived datasets will remain published but will not be updated. Any data posted during the active program year is subject to change.
