BILL NUMBER:S6001 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to funding early intervention services PURPOSE: To provide a system that streamlines the process by which funds are distributed to municipalities to finance early intervention programs, thereby providing vital relief to the municipalities across the state, and to improve their ability to more effectively administer early intervention services to children who need such services. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends the public health law by adding a new section 2807-o that provides definitions for terms used in this section of law. Section one also provides that the commissioner of health shall make grants to municipalities for the delivery of early intervention services. Such grants shall be deemed reimbursements from third party payors to the municipalities and the State and shall be a share of grants equal to the proportionate share of the municipality and the State, as the case may be, of the total approved statewide dollars not reimbursable by the medical assistance program paid by municipalities and the State to providers of early intervention services in the last complete state fiscal year for which such data is available.
