Texas Food Program Surety Bonds
A surety bond might need to be posted by food program sponsoring organizations. This would be in order to participate in a child and adult day care food program. These organizations are private non-profit that administer a food program in a child or adult day care home or center. The programs are federal programs which are administered by the states. The bond would have to be posted to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission where they would determine the amount and rules. Under existing federal regulations and law permit the states to require a bond from sponsoring organizations in connection with the program. The bond must be from a surety company listed in the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Circular 570. That is in accordance with the federal regulations concerning this program.
