Oregon Statutes - Chapter 430 - Administration; Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs - Section 430.359 - Funding of services.

(1) Upon approval of an application, the Department of Human Services shall enter into a matching fund relationship with the applicant. In all cases the amount granted by the department under the matching formula shall not exceed 50 percent of the total estimated costs, as approved by the department, of the alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services.

(2) The amount of state funds shall be apportioned among the applicants according to the community need of the applicant for services as compared with the community needs of all applicants. In evaluating the community needs of the applicant, the department, in consultation with the Governorís Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs, shall give priority consideration to those applications that identify and include alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services aimed at providing services to minorities with a significant population of affected persons. The funds granted shall be distributed monthly.

(3) Federal funds at the disposal of an applicant for use in providing alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services may be counted toward the percentage contribution of an applicant.

(4) An applicant that is, at the time of a grant made under this section, expending funds appropriated by its governing body for the alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services shall, as a condition to the receipt of funds under this section, maintain its financial contribution to these programs at an amount not less than the preceding year. However, the financial contribution requirement may be waived in its entirety or in part in any year by the Department of Human Services because of:

(a) The severe financial hardship that would be imposed to maintain the contribution in full or in part;

(b) The application of any special funds for the alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services in the prior year when such funds are not available in the current year;

(c) The application of federal funds, including but not limited to general revenue sharing, distributions from the Oregon and California land grant fund and block grant funds to the alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services in the prior year when such funds are not available for such application in the current year; or

(d) The application of fund balances resulting from fees, donations or underexpenditures in a given year of the funds appropriated to counties pursuant to ORS 430.380 (2) to the alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services in the prior year when such funds are not available for such application in the current year.

(5) Any moneys received by an applicant from fees, contributions or other sources for alcohol and drug abuse prevention, early intervention and treatment services for service purposes, including federal funds, shall be considered a portion of an applicantís contribution for the purpose of determining the matching fund formula relationship. All moneys so received shall only be used for the purposes of carrying out ORS 430.345 to 430.380.

(6) Grants made pursuant to ORS 430.345 to 430.380 shall be paid from funds specifically appropriated therefor and shall be paid in the same manner as other claims against the state are paid. [Formerly 430.365; 1985 c.517 §1; 1985 c.740 §14; 1987 c.53 §6]
