Like previous years, we <br />have prepared a proposal requesting the continuation of the program for the federal fiscal year <br />October 1, 2004-September 30, 2005. The proposal needs Cass County Commission support. The <br />Cass County Extension Service proposal is combined with proposals from other North Dakota <br />counties. The combined proposal will be forwarded to the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) <br />branch of USDA by July 1, 2004 for consideration. The County Support Agreement is attached to <br />this request for your review. <br /> <br />The success of this program depends on a close working relationship with staff and clients of <br />several local agencies. Dana Cook and Stephanie Volk are the Cass County Extension Service <br />staff members with job responsibilities for this program. <br /> <br />This year's proposal commits primarily in-kind resources from Cass County and Fargo Public <br />School. The only cash resources committed from Cass County are a phone line, copying of <br />program materials and expendable office supplies. These resources are identified on the County <br />Support Agreement. <br /> <br />If you have questions about this I'd be happy to visit with you about it. <br /> <br />Suggested motion is: <br /> <br /> Move that the Cass County Commission support the Family Nutrition Program county <br />proposal for continuation of the program from October 1, 2004-September 30, 2005 pending <br />proposal acceptance by State and Federal partners. <br /> <br />1:fnp/commissionltr2002 <br /> <br />GOVERNMENT <br /> <br />County Commissions, North Dakota State University and U.S. Department of Agriculture Cooperating <br /> NDSU is an equal opportunity institution <br /> <br /> <br />
