Nutrition Service Incentive Program Contract Award Amendment
At the beginning of the FY 18-19 fiscal year, the Non-Metro Area Agency of Aging (NMAAA) informed contractors at the NM State Advisory Council Meeting that Nutritional Service Incentive Program (NSIP) federal contract money would not be available for the F 18-19 year. NMAAA asked contractors to submit a program budget that did not include NSIP dollars. The state contract submitted did not include NSIP money, so the matching city funds (City General Funds) amount submitted was factored in to cover the meal cost short-fall in the state budget. To date, only state contracted amounts have been spent. In October 2018, the NMAAA sent out a notice that NSIP funds had been approved and they sent contracts to contractors for the FY 18-19 year in the amount of $28,726.19. This was approved to be added to the Senior Program budget at the November 27, 2018 city council meeting. In February of 2019, the NMAAA sent out another notice that an amendment to the NSIP funds had been approved and they have sent out the current NSIP contract for an additional $28,739.47. The total of NSIP funds received for FY 18-19 totals $57,465.66. In FY 17-18 the NSIP funds total was $50,955. The FY 18-19 year has seen NSIP allocation increase by $6,510.66. The Nutritional Service Incentive Program (NSIP) funds are used to solely purchase United States agricultural commodities. This money provides food for both the Congregate Meals and the Home-Delivered Meals.
