BILL NUMBER:S3939

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the social services law, in relation
to public-private partnerships to support at-risk children; and
providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE: This legislation creates a pilot program chat creates an
incentive for private donors to invest in evidence based programs that
address the critical needs of the state's most vulnerable children.
The pilot would leverage the strong alliance Monroe County has built
with its private business and philanthropic community to integrate
public dollars with private donations to invest in programs to support
at-risk children and families. The program will test the effectiveness
of public incentives to raise significant private money for
innovative, evidence based programs that ultimately save taxpayer
money through programs, provided on a community basis for the purpose
of preventing child abuse and neglect, averting family crisis and
later foster care placements preventing delinquency or promoting
positive youth development.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

§ 1 adds a new Social Services Law § 153-1 to establish a pilot
program that authorizes Monroe County to use state funds for
public-private partnerships to support preventive programs for at risk
children that provide:

-home visitation, treatment intervention and parenting education to
families eligible for service under the temporary assistance for needy
families program;

-educational intervention and improvement services for students at
risk of academic failure and school drop out;

-intervention and individualized planning services providing support
for families that have sought family court intervention for a person
in need of supervision petition or child with serious emotional
challenges;

-services intended to increase graduation rates and prepare students
for college or the workplace through one-on-one mentoring, academic
support, life and social skills, and job readiness; and

-at-risk first-time parents with maternal and child health nurses to
improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, and family
economic self-sufficiency.

§ 1 also require Monroe County to prepare an annual report regarding
this program, including the sources and amounts of private funding
obtained, the programs supported through such funding, and the costs
and benefits of such program for the county of Monroe.

§ 2. Makes this bill effective immediately Upon enactment, and
provides that it expires on December 31, 2018.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011-2012: S5718 Reported to Finance


EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately Upon enactment, and expires on December
