Determine of students
Determine # of Students

www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/FFVP/FFVPdefault.htm

To determine the number of students that can participate in the Program within the required per-student allocation range of $50-$75:

$174,005 July allocation (Max of 25% of total made available)$522,215 October allocation $696,220 Total for School Year

$21,000 Administrative funds retained by State

=$675,220 Available to schools

Range of students that can participate:

$675,220 / $50 = 13,504 students

$675,220 / $75 = 9,002 students

After the range of students has been determined, States should determine the per-student dollar amount they want to fund and begin the outreach process to eligible high need schools.
