FMNP Waiver Update
May 27, 2020
NAFMNP is working with Congressional Legislators to give the USDA the same waiver authority for Senior FMNP that the USDA has for WIC FMNP. The goal is to relieve the strain of administrative requirements associated with delivering FMNP benefits during the Covid-19 pandemic. NAFMNP is pleased to report that flexibilities were secured in the Heroes Act passed by the House last week (May 15, 2020). NAFMNP hopes to have this provision included in the next Covid-19 stimulus bill. For details, please see the pertinent language from the Heroes Act here.
