Sponsor Management Plan and Budget

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors of homes must submit a management plan.  The plan must provide documentation from the sponsor illustrating measurable expected performance outcomes.  The standards for those outcomes are defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations and focus on the Sponsors' financial viability, organizational capability, and accountability (internal controls).

A complete management plan is required once on the original application with updates annually. Instructions, related documents and worksheets are provided to assist sponsoring organizations in the preparation of materials needed to complete the submission of a management plan.
