BILL NUMBER:S3190

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to
authorizing the commissioner of health to make grants to be used for the
costs of conducting a local blood donation drive

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: Provides grants to encourage
community blood drives.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Amends Public Health Law § 3100 to
allow the Health Commissioner to make grants, within amounts appropri-
ated, to not-for-profit organizations and elementary, secondary and
postsecondary schools to help pay for the costs of conducting a local
blood donation drive.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill would create a program of grants to help
community groups and schools run blood drives. When community organiza-
tions or schools conduct blood drives, the blood bank generally pays for
the cost of the blood collection itself. But the blood banks do not pay
for promotional activities such as mailings to an organization's
members, or the cost of the space if this cost exists.
