BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Subdivision 4 of section 390-e of the social services  law,
as  added  by  chapter  459  of  the laws of 2006, is amended to read as
follows:
  4. Every mentoring program that chooses to apply for a criminal histo-
ry background check with the division of criminal justice services shall
obtain a set of fingerprints from each individual for  whom  a  criminal
background  check  is  to  be completed and such other information as is
required by the office and the division of  criminal  justice  services.
For  each  prospective employee or mentor for whom the mentoring program
completes a criminal  background  check,  the  mentoring  program  shall
provide  the applicant with blank fingerprint cards and a description of
how the completed fingerprint card will be used upon submission  to  the
mentoring  program.  The  mentoring program shall promptly transmit such
fingerprint card and the processing fee to the office; PROVIDED,  HOWEV-
ER,  IF  THE  MENTORING  PROGRAM  IS OPERATED BY A NOT-FOR-PROFIT CORPO-
RATION, NO PROCESSING FEE SHALL BE IMPOSED  FOR  A  CRIMINAL  BACKGROUND
CHECK.  The  office  shall  promptly submit the fingerprint card and the
processing fee, IF imposed pursuant to subdivision  eight-a  of  section
eight  hundred  thirty-seven  of  the  executive law, to the division of
criminal justice services for its full search and retain processing.
