From a Memorandum of Understanding template:
The purpose of this MOU is to clearly identify the roles and responsibilities of each party as they relate to the implementation of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Stamp Program (FSP). The FSP is intended to help state agencies inform low-income households about the availability, eligibility requirements, applications procedures and benefits for the program. To support this goal, Party A and Party B will conduct food stamp outreach to eligible families as described in their respective Outreach Plan.
Won't native speakers find this use of intended to awkward, since the FSP was intended primarily to provide indigent households with means to obtain food, not to just "inform" them?
Does this use of intended to create an impression of
The sole purpose of the FSP is to help state agencies inform low-income households.
Or does it leave space for other "intentions" of the FSP's authors, such as the actual provision of help?
