The CNP System is a web-based software solution that provides Connecticut administrators, state users, and sponsors with efficient and immediate access to applications, claims, and related nutrition program functions for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Child Nutrition Programs. The CNP System allows authorized users to submit and approve applications, claims, and miscellaneous forms online, as their security rights permit.

Connecticut’s CNP System applies to the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), and school nutrition programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Afterschool Snack Program (ASP), Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP), and Special Milk Program (SMP).
