7 CFR 247.35 - Local agency appeals of State agency actions.

§ 247.35 Local agency appeals of State agency actions.
(a) What recourse must the State agency provide local agencies to appeal a decision that adversely affects their participation in CSFP? The State agency must establish a hearing procedure to allow local agencies to appeal a decision that adversely affects their participation in CSFP—e.g., the termination of a local agency's participation in the program. The adverse action must be postponed until a decision on the appeal is made.
(b) What must the State agency include in the hearing procedure to ensure that the local agency has a fair chance to present its case? The hearing procedure must provide the local agency:
(1) Adequate advance notice of the time and place of the hearing;
(2) An opportunity to review the record before the hearing, and to present evidence at the hearing;
(3) An opportunity to confront and cross-examine witnesses; and
(4) An opportunity to be represented by counsel, if desired.
(c) Who conducts the hearing and how is a decision on the appeal made? The hearing must be conducted by an impartial person who must make a decision on the appeal that is based solely on the evidence presented at the hearing, and on program legislation and regulations. A decision must be made within 60 days from the date of the request for a hearing, and must be provided in writing to the local agency.
