We have received notification that the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) has accepted the recent USDA waiver to allow for Tier I rates to be reimbursed to all family child care providers regardless of their area eligibility for 1 year beginning July 1, 2021 (see brief details below). We will update this page when we have more details, in the meantime we celebrate and thank USDA and MDE for their continued efforts to ensure Minnesota children have access to healthy, nutritious foods!
USDA has announced a new “suite of waivers” to ensure children have access to nutritious meals as the nations recovers from the pandemic. Many will look familiar BUT there are some additional flexibilities in this round. Of special note:
- Starting July 1, 2021 through June 2022, all family child care providers on the food program are eligible to be Tier I regardless of where they live.
