§ 13-26-107. Appropriations -- Local contributions.
(a) Any funds appropriated to implement this chapter are subject to the approval of the governor and the commissioner of finance and administration.
(b) Such approval shall be given only after review by the office of the governor of the annual work program developed by the human resource agency to assure that such program is in accordance with the development plans of the state.
(c) It is the intent of the state to assist financially with the delivery of human resources for residents. After the creation of any such board as provided in this chapter and when the local governments have indicated a willingness to contribute financially by adopting a budget requiring a certain per capita assessment, the state is authorized to match the local contributions according to the following schedule:
- Local Assessment Annual StateContribution Cents/CapitaContributionCap/County 1-5 $40,000 $7,500 6-10 $70,000 $7,500 11-15 $100,000 $10,000 16-20 $150,000 $12,500
(d) Such local contributions shall be based upon, in the case of counties, an amount not to exceed fifteen cents (15¢) per capita based on the latest decennial census, one half (½) of which may be contributed by local incorporated cities or by other private, public or semipublic bodies; provided, that no county shall be required to contribute more than ten thousand dollars ($10,000) annually. The aggregate of such funds may also be used for purposes of matching various federal programs of assistance. Counties and municipalities may participate independently of each other in financing the activities of the board. Cities and counties are specifically authorized to appropriate and expend funds for carrying out the purposes of this chapter.
