§ 41.52 Community residential services for alcoholism.

(a) The commissioner of alcoholism and substance abuse services is
authorized, within appropriations made therefor, to establish a
continuum of community residential services for alcoholism.

(b) The commissioner shall establish standards for the operation and
funding of community residential services, including but not limited to:

(1) criteria for admission to and continued residence in each type of
community residence;

(2) periodic evaluation of services provided by community residences;

(3) staffing patterns for each type of community residence; and

(4) guidelines for determining state aid to community residences, as
described in subdivision (c) of this section.

(c) Within amounts available therefor and subject to regulations
established by the commissioner and notwithstanding any other provisions
of this article, the commissioner may provide state aid to local
governments and to voluntary agencies in an amount up to one hundred
percent of net operating costs of community residences for alcoholism
services. The commissioner shall establish guidelines for determining
the amount of state aid provided pursuant to this section. The
guidelines shall be designed to enable the effective and efficient
operation of such residences and shall include, but need not be limited
to, standards for determining anticipated revenue, for retention and use
of income exceeding the anticipated amount and for determining
reasonable levels of uncollectible income. Such state aid to voluntary
agencies shall not be granted unless the proposed community residence is
consistent with the relevant local services plan adopted pursuant to
section 41.18 of this article.
