AS 47.30.475. Grant-in-Aid Program.
- (a) A nonprofit corporation, a city or borough government, or other political subdivision of the state, or a combination
of these, is eligible for grant-in-aid funds under this section. Applications shall be sent to the department.
- (b) Money available under this section shall be awarded by the department to applicants on the basis of community need,
but only after consideration of comment and advice of the Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. In awarding
grants, the department shall further consider the amount of money that is available for all applications and whether an
application would contribute to the wise development of a comprehensive program of alcoholic and drug abuse
rehabilitation and prevention.
- (c) Grants shall be awarded in a ratio of 75 percent state money to 25 percent community money for the costs of providing
staff and limited improvement, renovation, or new construction of facilities for alcohol or drug detoxification,
rehabilitation, or "half-way house" care. The department may waive all or part of the requirement that state money be
matched by community money if the department finds that community money is unavailable and waiver of the requirement is
in the best interests of the state. A grant for improving, renovating, or constructing may not exceed $50,000 except
when there is a lack of applicants for available money and then only with the approval of the Advisory Board on
Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. The department is not required to award all money available under this program, or the full
percentages specified in this subsection, when another source of money is available or could reasonably be made
available to the applicant.
- (d) Money used by the applicant to qualify for state money may be from any source other than the state. The cost of
developing an application is not reimbursable from the grant. The value of real property to be used directly in
conjunction with the grant may be used in calculating the required amount of community money, as allowed by regulations
of the department.
- (e) A grant may not be awarded under this section unless the application includes a plan that provides for
- (1) the expenditure of grant money for education and other preventative measures, or the treatment of alcoholics and drug
- (2) the reception of advice and comment from a local advisory board, or, if a local advisory board cannot be formed
because the area is sparsely populated, from the governing bodies of private nonprofit health organizations, regarding
the design, implementation, and evaluation of the plan and action to be taken;
- (3) goals, expressed in quantifiable terms that express the intended effect of the assistance provided under the plan upon
the number of individuals needing or utilizing that assistance;
- (4) [Repealed, Sec. 21 ch 6 SLA 1993].
- (f) The department shall monitor the implementation of the plan required under (e) of this section, and shall terminate
payment of grant money if the plan is not implemented or approval of the program as a public or private treatment
program under AS 47.37.140
is not granted within one year of the award of the grant, or is suspended, revoked, limited, or restricted.
Modification of the plan required by (e) of this section shall be approved by the department before implementation of
- (g) The department shall provide management training for persons administering a program receiving grant money under this
- (h) If the department determines, after the award of a grant under (c) of this section, that the community is capable of
bearing a greater portion of the cost of a program than originally determined, the department may
- (1) reduce the award by that portion of the cost of a program that the department subsequently determined the community
could bear; or
- (2) terminate payment of the grant entirely.
