TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the elder law, in relation to
establishing small flexible funds accounts at the local level
To provide designate agencies with funds that will enable the agencies
to provide services and programs to the elderly.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section one of the bill amends Elder Law section 203 by adding a new
subdivision 11 to authorize the Director of the State Office for the
Aging to establish a regrant program that will be available to
designated agencies, as such term is defined in Elder Law section 214.
The availability of funds for this program are subject to
appropriation. Designated agencies may apply for funds to provide
activities that are not otherwise funded through the State Office for
the Aging, or for one-time events or short term needs. The designated
agencies must apply for and be approved for the funds. The application
for funding must include a Program Summary, Scope of Activity,
Staffing and budget, Marketing/Outreach, Selection Process, and an
Section two of the bill provides that this bill shall take effect
Currently, the State Office for the Aging is not authorized to engage
in a program similar to the regrant program.
Greater flexibility in providing services is one of the top requests
from designated agencies. The regrant program would provide designated
agencies with funds to serve needs that are not currently served and
to tailor the service to the community. This proposed program is
similar to a program provided through the State Council on the Arts.
