Uses and Restrictions
Funds are made available to State Units on Aging and U.S. Territories for use by local nutrition projects. Local projects must provide an appropriate meal, which complies with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans and provides one-third of the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI). Meals must be provided at least once per day, 5 or more days per week, except in rural areas where such frequency is not feasible, to eligible people aged 60 and over and their spouses. Local projects may also use funds to provide nutrition education, nutrition counseling and other nutrition services, as appropriate, based on the needs of meal participants.
Eligibility Requirements
For Title III congregate meals, persons who are older adults (age 60 years and above) or a spouse of an older adult, regardless of age; disabled adults who live in housing facilities primarily occupied by older adults where a congregate site is located; disabled adults under age 60, who reside at home with older adults; and volunteers, regardless of age, who assist in meal service during meal hours. For Title III home-delivered meals, an older individual must be assessed to be homebound. The spouse of a homebound individual regardless of age or condition may receive a meal if receipt of the meal is assessed to be in the best interest of the homebound older adult.
