48.565 Carry-over of children and family aids funds.

(1) Funds allocated by the department under s. 48.569 (1) (d) but not spent or encumbered by counties by December 31 of each year lapse to the general fund on the succeeding January 1 unless carried forward to the next calendar year under s. 20.437 (1) (b) or as follows:

(a) At the request of a county, the department shall carry forward to the next calendar year up to 3 percent of the total amount allocated to the county under s. 48.569 (1) (d) for a calendar year.

(b) At the request of a county, the department shall carry forward to the next calendar year up to 10 percent of the total amount allocated to the county under s. 48.569 (1) (d) for a calendar year if the department agrees that an emergency or other circumstance that was unforeseen when the original allocation to the county was made necessitates the carryover.

(2)

(a) The department may bill a county or deduct from a county's allocation under s. 48.563 (2) for the costs of implementing and operating the statewide automated child welfare information system established under s. 48.47 (7g). All moneys received by the department under this paragraph shall be credited to the appropriation account under s. 20.437 (1) (j).

(b) A county may not use any moneys distributed under s. 48.563 (2) to supplant any other moneys expended by the county for services and projects to assist children and families in a base year determined by the department.

(7) The amount of funds carried forward from the preceding calendar year at the request of a county under sub. (1) (a) or (b) does not affect the determination of that county's share of the funding allocated under s. 48.563 (2) for a calendar year.

(8) A county shall use funds carried forward under this section for services provided to children and families and not for the county's general administrative costs.
