Unless otherwise specified in the annual Budget Act, the funds appropriated in the annual Budget Act to the State Department of Social Services for the purposes of this article shall be allocated as follows:
(a) A sum equal to 90 percent of the appropriation shall be allocated to the board of supervisors of each of the participating counties.
(b) A sum equal to 7 percent of the appropriation shall be allocated to the State Children's Trust Fund established under Section 18969 for innovative, child-centered approaches which indicate promise of quality, cost-effective services to prevent child abuse and neglect.
(c) The Office of Child Abuse Prevention shall reserve a sum equal to 3 percent of the appropriation, to be used to provide administrative oversight and consultation that shall include activities necessary to do all of the following:
(1) Ensure that each county allocates revenues through the use of an accountable process that utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, particularly including strengthening child abuse councils and allocates revenues in a manner consistent with a county expenditure plan for all Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment program revenues. The county plans shall explain how services funded under this article are coordinated with the array of services available in the county and are based on unmet need. The Office of Child Abuse Prevention shall review and approve these plans prior to authorizing county expenditure of funds. The Office of Child Abuse Prevention shall require counties to submit annual reports on program services.
(2) Ensure Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment program compliance and accountability to the county plan and legislative intent.
(d) Counties with provider contracts in effect as of June 30, 1998, may continue those contracts. However, no county shall receive an augmentation of Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment funds unless the county modifies its program in accordance with subdivision (c). During the 1998-99 state fiscal year, if a county qualifies to receive an augmentation of funds, counties may augment existing provider contracts without competitive bids.
(e) The Office of Child Abuse Prevention may contract with a statewide nonprofit consortium with broad-based statewide representation to provide training and technical assistance, and to improve accountability for the use of funds in the Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment program using funds identified in subdivision (c).
(f) A portion of the funds specified in subdivision (c) may be allocated to the State Children's Trust Fund to be used for statewide training and technical assistance services. Moneys for statewide training and technical assistance may be supplemented under subdivision (a) by an amount not to exceed 0.50 percent of the total Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment appropriation but the total amount allocated statewide for training and technical assistance shall not exceed 2 percent of the total Child Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment appropriation.To accomplish this augmentation, the board of supervisors of each participating county may allocate annually a portion of its allocation under this section as a supplement to funds for statewide training and technical assistance. Activities to be funded with these supplemental moneys may be specified by the allocating county and approved by the State Department of Social Services.
