From the Objective: "Our ongoing inspection has four objectives. This report addresses Objective 1: What criteria did FNS [Food and Nutrition Service] use to approve States for food and administrative funds provided under the FFCR [Families First Coronavirus Response] and CARES [Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security] Acts. The Objective 1 includes the following sub objectives: (a) How much did FNS allocate to each State for food assistance and administrative funds under each act?; (b) Did FNS deny any State request for food assistance and/ or administrative funds provided under each act?; (c) Did FNS use different criteria to approve States for food assistance and administrative funds under each act?; and (d) What impact, if any, could changes to the criteria have on the integrity of the program? [...] We evaluated the process FNS used to approve States for food and administrative funds provided under the FFCR and CARES Acts. [...] We made no recommendations in this report."
