(1) Any county may apply to the department
for its allocation of the aids appropriated for the program. Two or more
counties may jointly prepare a single project proposal, but each county is
required to submit its own application. Except as otherwise provided in this
chapter, the department shall encumber the funds allocated to a county upon
approval of the county's application by the department and the execution of a
contract between the department and the county. The contract shall provide for
a schedule of disbursement of state aids so encumbered.
(2) Applications for grants of allocated aids
shall be submitted to the department no later than December 31 of the year
immediately preceding the project year. No application received after January 1
of the project year shall be funded unless the secretary of the department
determines that a later date is appropriate.
(3) Applications shall be made in a form and
manner prescribed by the department and signed by the county board chair,
county executive or county administrator, or the county position authorized in
writing each year by this person. Applications shall include, but not be
limited to, a project description, a project budget, a plan for allocated aid
held in trust, and such other relevant information as the department may
require to effectively evaluate the proposal. In addition, the application
shall include formal comments on the proposed project(s) by appropriate county
agencies such as committees or commissions on aging and boards created under
(5) A county shall submit
the original of its application to the department.
(6) A county applicant shall submit a copy of
its application for review and comment to the appropriate regional planning
commission, area agency on aging and department of health services' regional
office. In order to be considered by the department, comments by such agencies
must be submitted to the department by February 1 of the grant year.
