Iowa Admin. Code r. 641-151.7 - Distribution of funding

(1) Applications submitted in accordance with these rules will be evaluated by the administrator of the division of tobacco use prevention and control, or the administrator's designee, to determine whether the application meets the requirements for funding as designated in these rules. The administrator or designee may request additional information from any applicant regarding the content of the application and may condition funding based on an applicant's submission of additional information or based on an applicant's willingness to change any term of the application, including geographic boundaries of the community partnership area.
(2) The department in consultation with the commission shall allocate funding to the community partnerships from the total moneys appropriated to the tobacco use prevention and control initiative. If sufficient funds are available, the department shall distribute the funding allocated to the community partnerships in accordance with this rule.
(3) The department shall fund one community partnership per community partnership area. Funds shall be distributed equitably among the state's community partnership areas based on general population, school-age population, and designation of county or counties which comprise the community partnership area as a rural county or an urban county as defined by the Office of Management and Budget. Available funds will be distributed under the following formulas, using United States Census Bureau annual population estimates:

Rural counties:

$.84 per school-age youth plus an additional $.84 per non-school-age county resident

Urban counties:

$.52 per school-age youth plus an additional $.52 per non-school-age county resident; provided that application of the funding formula results in distribution to a community partnership of a minimum amount per county included in each community partnership area as determined annually by the department in consultation with the commission.

If application of the funding formula would result in distribution of less than the minimum established amount, the department shall distribute to such community partnership no less than the minimum established amount per county included in the community partnership area.

As sufficient funds become available, the department in consultation with the commission may also distribute to community partnerships funds for special or pilot projects within a community partnership area.

(4) Funding received by a community partnership shall be matched on a one-to-four basis. The match may include in-kind services, office support, or other tangible support or offset of costs.

Any offers to assist the applicant in reaching the match must be disclosed to the department in writing. In regard to any cash offers that are declined, the applicant must disclose reasons and rationale as to why these offers were declined.

(5) Prior to receiving funding, a community partnership shall be required to execute a contract with the department.
(6) Funding may be denied on grounds including, but not limited to:
a. Applications from more than one entity have been received covering the same, or portions of the same, geographic area and another application more closely satisfies application criteria.
b. The application is incomplete, untimely, or includes misleading or inaccurate information.
c. Program funds are no longer available.
d. Local matching funds, services, or support is not available.
e. The applicant refuses to execute a contract with the department.
f. The applicant fails to comply with the statute or administrative rules governing this program.
