  equivalent (FTE) staff, as defined herein,
  in  the  per  FTE  award amount. The total
  number of weighted FTE shall be determined
  by multiplying the actual  number  of  FTE
  teachers  providing  classroom instruction
  at  each  school,  as  determined  by  the
  commissioner,  by:  1) a factor of 2.0 for
  those schools where average salaries  that

  school  located  in  the  same  geographic
  region;  2)  a  factor  of  1.5  for those
  schools where average salaries that are 50
  percent and 75 percent of  public  schools

  3) a factor of 1.0 for those schools where
  the  average  salaries  that  are   75-100
  percent  of  public schools located in the
  same geographic region. The per FTE teach-
  er award amount  shall  be  calculated  by
  dividing   the  $2,000,000  by  the  total
  number  of  weighted   FTE   staff;   (ii)

    extent to which the proposal articulates and identifies how existing
    funding streams and programs would be used to provide such community
    services, and (v) the extent to which the proposal ensures the safe-
    ty  of all students, staff and community members in school buildings
    used as community hubs. Provided, however,  that  community  schools
    grants  appropriated  herein  shall  be  paid to school districts in
    installments upon successful  implementation  of  each  phase  of  a

    extent to which the proposal articulates and identifies how existing
    funding streams and programs would be used to provide such community
    services, and (v) the extent to which the proposal ensures the safe-
    ty  of all students, staff and community members in school buildings
    used as community hubs. Provided, however,  that  community  schools
    grants  appropriated  herein  shall  be  paid to school districts in
    installments upon successful  implementation  of  each  phase  of  a

    FTE  shall  be  determined  by  multiplying the actual number of FTE
    teachers providing classroom instruction at each school,  as  deter-
    mined  by the commissioner, by: 1) a factor of 2.0 for those schools
    where average salaries that are 50  percent  or  less  of  those  in
    public  school located in the same geographic region; 2) a factor of
    1.5 for those schools where average salaries that are 50 percent and

    staff; (ii) $2,000,000 shall be available for  payments  to  schools

    schools in the region in which such eligible school is located.  The
    allocation  to  each  qualifying school shall be calculated based on
    the number of weighted full time equivalent (FTE) staff, as  defined
    herein,  in  the  per FTE award amount. The total number of weighted
    FTE shall be determined by multiplying  the  actual  number  of  FTE
    teachers  providing  classroom instruction at each school, as deter-
    mined by the commissioner, by: 1) a factor of 2.0 for those  schools
    where  average  salaries  that  are  50  percent or less of those in
    public school located in the same geographic region; 2) a factor  of
    1.5 for those schools where average salaries that are 50 percent and
    75  percent of public schools located in the same geographic region;
    or 3) a factor of 1.0 for those schools where the  average  salaries
    that  are  75-100  percent  of  public  schools  located in the same
    geographic region. The per FTE teacher award amount shall be  calcu-
    lated by dividing the $2,000,000 by the total number of weighted FTE
    staff;  (ii)  $2,000,000  shall be available for payments to schools
    providing special services or programs as defined in  paragraphs  e,

  lowance  or  sanction  taken  against  the
  social  services  district, or any federal
  disallowance attributable to final federal
  agency decisions or to settlement made, on

  of  the social services district to comply
  with  federal   or   state   requirements,
  including,  but not limited to, failure to
  document eligibility for federal or  state
  funds in the case record; provided, howev-
  er,  if  the  office  determines  that any
  federal disallowance for services provided
  between January 1, 1999 and May  31,  1999
  results  solely from the late enactment of

Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the
  office of  children  and  family  services
  shall  impose on social services districts
  any federal  disallowance  issued  against
  the  state  as a result of a federal title
  IV-E secondary eligibility review  regard-
  less  of  the  date  the children may have
  entered foster care, the date  the  eligi-
  bility  or payment errors occurred, or the
  filing date  of  any  federal  claims  for
  reimbursement; provided, however, that the
  state  shall be responsible for the disal-
  lowed costs and  expenditures  related  to
  the  placement  of  children in a facility
  operated by the  office  of  children  and
  family services, which shall be determined
  in the same manner as the disallowed costs
  and   expenditures   for  social  services
  districts other than the city of New York.
  In order to reimburse the federal  govern-
  ment  for the full amount of any disallow-
  ance imposed on the state by  the  federal
  administration  for  children and families
  within the timeframes necessary  to  avoid
  any  potential  interest  payments on such
  amount, the office of children and  family
  services   is  authorized  to  immediately
  offset  funds  otherwise   due   to   each
  district for a pro rata share of the total
  disallowed  costs  based on the percentage
  of applicable federal  title  IV-E  claims
  made  by  that  district  for the relevant
  time  period  as  compared  to  the  total
  applicable  statewide  title  IV-E claims.
  The amount  of  the  offset  against  each
  district  will  be adjusted, if necessary,
  upon completion of the disallowance  allo-
  cation  process.  The  final allocation of
  the amount  of  any  federal  disallowance
  resulting  from  a  title  IV-E  secondary
  eligibility  review  shall  be   allocated
  among  the districts so that each district
  shall  be  responsible  for   the   amount
  attributable  to  each  of  the district's
  children or cases that are  determined  by
  the federal review to be unallowable. Each
  district  shall  also be responsible for a
  portion of the federal extrapolated disal-
  lowance amount based on the relative error
  rate for the district.  The  city  of  New
  York's  error  rate  will  be based on the

                                   213

  federal sample and federal statistics. For
  all social services districts  other  than
  the  city of New York, the error rate will
  be  based  on  a  review  conducted by the
  district of a sample  of  children  and/or
  cases determined by the office of children
  and  family  services and a re-review of a
  sub-sample by the office of those children
  and/or cases determined by the office. The
  office of  children  and  family  services
  will   determine  what  is  reasonable  in
  establishing the size of  the  sample  and
  sub-sample  for  each district. The office
  of  children  and  family  services  shall
  notify  each  social  services district of
  the sample of children and/or  cases  from
  the  federal  audit period that the social
  services district must review.  Any  child
  or  case from the social services district
  that was included in  the  federal  sample
  will  automatically  be  included  in  the
  social services district's  review  sample
  and  the determination made at the federal
  review regarding that child or  case  will
  govern  for  the  purposes  of  the social
  services  district's  review.  The  social
  services district must complete and submit
  the results of its review to the office of
  children  and  family  services  within 60
  days of receipt of the sample.  The  error
  rate for the district will be based on the
  findings  of the district's review and the
  office of children  and  family  services'
  re-review.  If  a social services district
  does not complete  its  review  within  60
  days  of  receiving  the  sample  from the
  office of children  and  family  services,
  the office of children and family services
  shall  assign  an error rate to the social
  services district based  on  the  relative
  percentage  of  the  district's applicable
  title IV-E claims for the relevant  period
  as  compared to applicable statewide title
  IV-E claims  for  that  period  and  other
  circumstances  that the office of children
  and family services may consider in  order
  to  allocate  100  percent  of the federal
  disallowance. The office of  children  and
  family  services  shall  apply each social
  services  district's  error  rate  to  the
  total  amount of the district's applicable

                                   214

  title  IV-E  claims  including  associated
  administrative   expenses.  The  resulting
  dollar  amounts  for  all  of  the  social
  services   districts  will  be  summed  to
  derive the  total  amount  of  title  IV-E
  claims deemed to be in error statewide. To
  establish  a  disallowance  percentage for
  each social services district, the  amount
  of the district's title IV-E claims deemed
  to  be  in  error  will  be divided by the
  amount  of  statewide  title  IV-E  claims
  deemed  to  be  in  error.  The  resulting
  disallowance percentage for each  district
  will  be  applied to the entire title IV-E
  extrapolated  disallowance  calculated  by
  the federal review to determine the amount
  of the extrapolated disallowance for which
  the district is responsible. Each district
  will  be  credited  for the amount already
  disallowed for any individual children  or
  cases  found  to  be  in  error during the
  federal  review.  The   exclusive   appeal
  rights for the review of the amount of the
  federal   disallowance  assigned  to  each
  social services district shall be pursuant
  to article 78 of the civil  practice  laws
  and  rules; provided, however, that in any
  such action all  of  the  social  services
  districts  shall  be  joined  as necessary
  parties and the venue of any  such  action
  shall  be in Rensselaer county. Any social
  services district that fails  to  complete
  its  sample  review  in  the required time
  frames shall have no right to  appeal  and
  shall  not  be  a  necessary  party to any
  action brought by another social  services
  district.

  submit  an  application for such funds may
  apply to the office of children and family
  services for a waiver of the  local  share
  requirement  for  the  program  funds  for

  provide  the required local share and that
  providing the program funds to the munici-

    and regulations relating to the federal funds included in the  state

    October 1, 2012, reimbursement for  administrative  costs  shall  be
    either  reduced  or  withheld,  and  failure  of an administrator to
    submit a timely report may  jeopardize  such  program's  funding  in

    program  through  the  pilot  initiative,  provided however that the
    office of children and family services shall not  reimburse  subsidy
    payments  in  excess  of the amount the subsidy funding appropriated
    herein can support and the applicable local social services district
    shall not be required to approve or pay  for  subsidies  not  funded
    herein.  The total number of slots for pilot programs located within
    the city of New York shall not exceed  one  thousand  during  fiscal
    year  2012-13.  Vacancies  in child care slots may be filled at such
    time as the total enrollment of the New York city pilot  program  is
    less  than  one  thousand  slots.  The  pilot program located in the
    borough of Queens shall receive one new  additional  slot  for  each
    slot which becomes available through attrition once the total number
    of  filled  child  care slots reaches less than one thousand.  Child
    care subsidies paid on behalf of eligible families  shall  be  reim-
    bursed  at  the actual cost of care up to the applicable market rate
    for the district in which the child care is provided  in  accordance
    with  the  fee schedule of the local social services district making
    the subsidy payments. Pilot programs are required to submit  monthly
    reports  to  the  office  of children and family services, the local
    social services district, and for programs located in  the  city  of
    New York, the administration for children's services, and the legis-

    identifying  information,  the  pilot  program's  current enrollment
    level, amount of the child's subsidy, co-payment  levels  and  other
    information  as  needed  or  required  by the office of children and
    family services. Further, the office of children and family services
    shall provide technical assistance to the pilot  program  to  assist
    with  project  administration and timely coordination of the monthly
    claiming process. Notwithstanding any other provision  of  law,  any
    pilot  programs  maintained herein may be terminated if the adminis-
    trator for such programs mismanages such programs,  by  engaging  in
    actions including but not limited to, improper use of funds, provid-
    ing  for  child  care  subsidies in excess of the amount the subsidy
    funding appropriated herein  can  support,  and  failing  to  submit

    are  submitted  on  or  before January 2, 2013 and, in part, on such
    other factors as determined by the office  of  children  and  family
    services  and approved by the director of the budget. Any portion of
    a  social  services  district's  allocation  from funds appropriated
    herein not claimed by such district during the state fiscal year may
    be used by such district for  expenditures  on  preventive  services
    provided pursuant to section 409-a of the social services law, inde-
    pendent  living services and aftercare services provided pursuant to
    regulations of the department of family assistance, claimed by  such
    district  during the next state fiscal year up to the amount remain-
    ing from the district's foster care block grant allocation, provided
    however, that any claims for such services  during  the  next  state
    fiscal  year in excess of such amount shall be subject to 62 percent
    state reimbursement exclusive of any federal  funds  made  available
    for  such  purposes, in accordance with directives of the department
    of family assistance and subject to the approval of the director  of
    the  budget.  Any claims submitted by a social services district for
    reimbursement for a particular  state  fiscal  year  for  which  the
    social   services   district  does  not  receive  state  or  federal
    reimbursement during that state  fiscal  year  may  not  be  claimed
    against that district's block grant apportionment for the next state
    fiscal year.
  The  office  of children and family services, with the approval of the
    director of the budget, may reduce a district's  block  grant  allo-
    cation  by  the  state share decrease related to federal retroactive
    reimbursement for such foster care services identified  herein.  The
    office,  with the approval of the director of the budget, may reduce
    a district's block grant allocation by the state share of  disallow-
    ances or sanctions taken against the district pursuant to the social
    services law or federal law.
  Notwithstanding  any  other  provision  of law, the state shall not be
    responsible  for  reimbursing  a  social  services  district  and  a
    district  shall  not seek state reimbursement for any portion of any
    state disallowance or sanction taken  against  the  social  services
    district,  or any federal disallowance attributable to final federal
    agency decisions or to settlement made, on or after  July  1,  1995,
    when  such  disallowance or sanction results from the failure of the
    social services district to comply with federal  or  state  require-
    ments,  including, but not limited to, failure to document eligibil-
    ity for federal or state funds in the case record; provided,  howev-
    er,  if  the  office  determines  that  any federal disallowance for
    services provided between January 1, 1999 and May 31,  1999  results
    solely from the late enactment of the state legislation implementing
    the federal adoption and safe families act, the state shall be sole-
    ly  responsible for the full amount of the disallowance or sanction;
    provided, further, however, this provision shall be deemed to  apply
    both  prospectively  and  retroactively  regardless  of whether such
    sanctions or disallowances are for services provided or claims  made
    prior to or after April 1, 2013.
  Notwithstanding  any  other provision of law, any federal disallowance
    resulting from a federal title IV-E eligibility review or audit that

    uses extrapolated statistic techniques shall be passed along by  the
    state  to  any  and all social services districts that the office of
    children and family services has determined have not  complied  with
    the title IV-E eligibility requirements or have not taken the neces-
    sary  actions to ensure compliance with such requirements including,
    but not limited to, failing to: assess and fully  document  all  the
    criteria  and  have readily available all the necessary documents to
    establish and continue title IV-E eligibility  for  all  title  IV-E
    eligible  children within the required time frames; claim title IV-E
    funding only for cases that meet all of the title  IV-E  eligibility
    criteria;  and fully implement the social services payment system on
    or before April 1, 2005 for all direct and voluntary  agency  foster
    care services.
  Notwithstanding  any  law  to the contrary, the office of children and
    family services shall impose on social services districts any feder-
    al disallowance issued against the state as a result  of  a  federal
    title  IV-E  secondary eligibility review regardless of the date the
    children may have entered foster care, the date the  eligibility  or
    payment  errors  occurred,  or the filing date of any federal claims
    for reimbursement;  provided,  however,  that  the  state  shall  be
    responsible for the disallowed costs and expenditures related to the
    placement  of children in a facility operated by the office of chil-
    dren and family services, which shall  be  determined  in  the  same
    manner  as the disallowed costs and expenditures for social services
    districts other than the city of New York. In order to reimburse the
    federal government for the full amount of any  disallowance  imposed
    on the state by the federal administration for children and families
    within  the  timeframes  necessary  to  avoid any potential interest
    payments on such amount, the office of children and family  services
    is  authorized  to  immediately  offset  funds otherwise due to each
    district for a pro rata share of the total disallowed costs based on
    the percentage of applicable federal title IV-E claims made by  that
    district  for  the  relevant  time  period  as compared to the total
    applicable statewide title IV-E claims. The  amount  of  the  offset
    against   each   district  will  be  adjusted,  if  necessary,  upon
    completion of the disallowance allocation process.  The final  allo-
    cation  of  the  amount of any federal disallowance resulting from a
    title IV-E secondary eligibility review shall be allocated among the
    districts so that each district shall be responsible for the  amount
    attributable  to  each  of the district's children or cases that are
    determined by the federal review to be  unallowable.  Each  district
    shall  also be responsible for a portion of the federal extrapolated
    disallowance amount  based  on  the  relative  error  rate  for  the
    district.  The  city  of  New York's error rate will be based on the
    federal sample and  federal  statistics.  For  all  social  services
    districts  other  than  the city of New York, the error rate will be
    based on a review conducted by the district of a sample of  children
    and/or  cases  determined  by  the  office  of  children  and family
    services and a re-review of a sub-sample  by  the  office  of  those
    children  and/or cases determined by the office. The office of chil-
    dren and family services will determine what is reasonable in estab-

    lishing the size of the sample and sub-sample for each district. The
    office of children and family  services  shall  notify  each  social
    services  district  of  the sample of children and/or cases from the
    federal  audit period that the social services district must review.
    Any child or  case  from  the  social  services  district  that  was
    included in the federal sample will automatically be included in the
    social  services district's review sample and the determination made
    at the federal review regarding that child or case will  govern  for
    the  purposes  of  the social services district's review. The social
    services district must complete and submit the results of its review
    to the office of children and family  services  within  60  days  of
    receipt of the sample. The error rate for the district will be based
    on  the findings of the district's review and the office of children
    and family services' re-review. If a social services  district  does
    not  complete its review within 60 days of receiving the sample from
    the office of children and family services, the office  of  children
    and  family  services  shall  assign  an  error  rate  to the social
    services district based on the relative percentage of the district's
    applicable title IV-E claims for the relevant period as compared  to
    applicable  statewide  title  IV-E  claims for that period and other
    circumstances that the office of children and  family  services  may
    consider  in  order to allocate 100 percent of the federal disallow-
    ance. The office of children and family services  shall  apply  each
    social  services  district's  error  rate to the total amount of the
    district's applicable title IV-E claims including associated  admin-
    istrative  expenses.  The  resulting  dollar  amounts for all of the
    social services districts will be summed to derive the total  amount
    of title IV-E claims deemed to be in error statewide. To establish a
    disallowance  percentage  for  each  social  services  district, the
    amount of the district's title IV-E claims deemed  to  be  in  error
    will  be divided by the amount of statewide title IV-E claims deemed
    to be in error.  The  resulting  disallowance  percentage  for  each
    district  will  be  applied  to  the  entire title IV-E extrapolated
    disallowance calculated by  the  federal  review  to  determine  the
    amount  of  the  extrapolated disallowance for which the district is
    responsible. Each district will be credited for the  amount  already
    disallowed for any individual children or cases found to be in error
    during  the  federal  review.  The  exclusive  appeal rights for the
    review of the amount of the federal disallowance  assigned  to  each
    social  services  district  shall  be  pursuant to article 78 of the
    civil practice laws and rules; provided, however, that in  any  such
    action  all  of  the  social  services  districts shall be joined as
    necessary parties and the venue of any such action shall be in Rens-
    selaer county. Any social services district that fails  to  complete
    its sample review in the required time frames shall have no right to
    appeal  and  shall not be a necessary party to any action brought by
    another social services district.
  The money hereby appropriated is to be available for payment of  state
    aid  heretofore  accrued  or  hereafter to accrue to municipalities.

    stamp act, funds herein appropriated, in amounts  certified  by  the
    state  comptroller  or  the state commissioner of health as due from
    local social  services  districts  each  month  as  their  share  of
    payments  made  pursuant to section 367-b of the social services law
    may be set aside by the state comptroller  in  an  interest  bearing
    account with such interest accruing to the credit of the locality in
    order  to  ensure  the orderly and prompt payment of providers under
    section 367-b of the social services law  pursuant  to  an  estimate
    provided by the commissioner of health of each local social services
    district's  share  of payments made pursuant to section 367-b of the
    social services law.
  Notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the  contrary,  the
    office  of  children  and  family  services may, on behalf of social
    services districts, make payments  to  foster  boarding  homes  paid
    directly  by  social  services  districts by direct deposit or debit
    card. Local social services districts shall reimburse the office for
    the costs  of  administering  such  direct  deposit  or  debit  card
    payments.
  Notwithstanding  any inconsistent provision of the social services law
    or the state finance law, the office of children and family services
    shall, on a quarterly basis, request that the  office  of  temporary
    and disability assistance reimburse the office of children and fami-
    ly  services for the non-federal share of the costs of administering
    such direct deposit or debit card  payments  to  capture  the  local
    share of such costs.

    district fails to provide reimbursement to the  office  of  children
    and  family  services  pursuant  to section 529 of the executive law

    provided,  however,  that  should insufficient funds be available to
    provide state reimbursement for 98 percent of  65  percent  of  such
    costs,  reimbursement  shall be made proportionally to each district
    based on the percentage of their total eligible claims to the amount

    appropriated  exceeds  the amount of funds necessary to reimburse 98

    provide reimbursement for 98  percent  of  65  percent  of  eligible
    social  services  district expenditures for new community preventive
    services programs approved by the office and only up to the  amounts

    Notwithstanding  any  inconsistent provision of law, and pursuant to
    chapter 7 of the laws of 1999 and chapter 668 of the laws  of  2006,
    local  social services districts shall reimburse the commissioner of
    the office of children and family services for an  amount  equal  to

    commissioner of the office of children and  family  services  in  an
    amount  equal  to  53.94  percent  of  the  nonfederal share of such
    payments provided that such reimbursement in payments reflects actu-
    al expenditures  made  on  behalf  of  each  local  social  services
    district to capture the local share of such costs.
  Notwithstanding  any inconsistent provision of the social services law
    or the state finance law, the commissioner  shall,  on  a  quarterly
    basis,  request that the commissioner of the office of temporary and

    ter and shall be charged among districts  based  on  the  number  of
    children  currently  placed  in  foster  care  in  each local social
    services district provided that this methodology is revised quarter-
    ly to reflect most  current  available  data.  Amounts  appropriated
    herein  may,  subject to the director of the budget, be interchanged
