40A:5-16.2. Payment of advance to nonprofit organization or agency with which local unit has service contract; resolution; conditions
Notwithstanding the provisions of N.J.S. 40A:5-16, the governing body of any local unit may, by resolution, provide for and authorize payment of an advance to any nonprofit organization or agency with which the local unit has entered into a service contract, for the purpose of meeting service program start-up costs; provided, however, that:
a. The source of the funds to be advanced is a Federal grant allowing the local unit to receive funds in advance of disbursement and requiring that any interest earned on said funds be returned to the Federal Government;
b. The governing body has determined, by resolution, that the advance is necessary in order to prevent undue hardship to said contractor in achieving the objectives of the Federal grant;
c. The amount of the advance to any given contractor does not exceed an amount equal to the total amount of the contract divided by the number of months in the term of the contract, and provided further that the total disbursements of the local unit to the contractor, including the amount of the advance outstanding, shall not, at any time, exceed the total cash receipts of the local unit under the Federal grant up to that time; and,
d. The resolution authorizing the advance includes a schedule for the depletion of the advance, in accordance with sound accounting practice, indicating that the advance will be entirely depleted by the termination date of the contract.
