To provide contractors with a guide to determine free and reduced-price eligibility.
HHSC provides you with copies of Form 4504 when the USDA issues new standards. Use Form 4504 to compare an applicant's family size and income to USDA standards for determining free and reduced-price eligibility.
Use one copy as a reference.
Photocopy Form 4504, as necessary.
Keep Form 4504 with all other program forms and records for three years and 90 days from the end of the contracted period. Exception: If audit findings, claims, or litigation have not been resolved, keep all forms and records until all issues are resolved.
