Claims and Reimbursement

School Nutrition Program (SNP) sponsors must submit claims for reimbursement online via the Cyber-Linked Interactive Child Nutrition System (CLiCS).  Information for submitting claims within the required timeframe, current reimbursement rates, and meal count forms are available on this page. See related links for information from USDA about benefits, costs and record keeping for operating certain school nutrition programs with free meals for all students (Provisions 1, 2 and 3).

Attendance Factor
The state attendance factor for use by school food authorities for school year 2015-16 is 93.9 percent. Apply this percentage to the number of students enrolled to estimate average attendance for monthly claims for reimbursement.
