(a) In addition to administering grants for adult day care programs and family respite care services for older Alaskans under AS 47.65.010 - 47.65.050, the department may make grants under this section from funds otherwise available to it for adult day care programs and family respite care services for frail older persons and other similarly disabled adults.

(b) In order to fund grants under this section, the department may seek and enter into contracts or grants with any party, including reimbursable service agreements with other state agencies.
