Emergency Operating Reimbursement Program

The Emergency Operating Cost Reimbursement Program was only available in 2021.

The Emergency Operating Reimbursement Program was a program available to eligible sponsors participating in either the School Nutrition Programs (SNP) and/or the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). Sponsors were eligible for this additional money if they received lower reimbursement in any of the months of March, April, May or June 2020 when compared to the same month in 2019, and were still participating in the program in September, October, November or December 2020, or communicated with the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) their intent to participate again when the pandemic is over. This funding came from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
