BILL NUMBER:S322 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation to establishing school-outreach domestic violence prevention programs PURPOSE: Directs social services districts to contract with non-residential programs for victims of domestic violence to provide outreach and education in high schools. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Subdivision 5 of section 459-a of the social services law by excluding the requirement that victims of domestic violence and their children constitute at least 70% of the clientele of a "non-residential program for victims of domestic violence", if such program is providing school-outreach domestic violence prevention. Section 2 amends section 459-c of the social services law by adding a new subdivision 3, which requires a social services district to purchase a domestic violence program for public and private middle and high school students from a non-residential, not-for-profit organization operating a program for victims of domestic violence, and that 100% of expenditures by the social services district where appropriately expressed, shall be state reimbursed.
