It is the responsibility of the SFA or SA to direct the disposition of equipment for those schools that no longer participate in the Program in keeping with existing guidance and the regulation at 7 CFR 3016.32(c)(1), and (e)(1) and (2). In general, when the equipment is no longer needed for the original program or project, the equipment may be used in other activities currently or previously supported by a Federal agency. (Please refer to the regulation, Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Cooperative Agreements to State and Local Governments at 7 CFR 3016.32 for a detailed explanation.)
Any school requesting FFVP funds for equipment must provide justification for the equipment. The justification should include an explanation on why additional equipment is needed and why current equipment cannot suffice, the extent of the program, e.g. how many days a week the program is offered, and any other information that will support the request for additional equipment.
Schools requesting equipment that may be used in other programs mustprorate the cost of the equipment among all programs that will use the equipment. Along with the equipment justification, schools must also indicate percent usage for the FFVP, and make sure to only claim that portion directly associated with FFVP operations.
