The office shall distribute a standard request for proposal and shall select the primary prevention program for each service area through a competitive bidding process. Grants for programs in each county shall be determined on a proportional basis according to the number of children in center based preschools and in the schools, kindergarten through 12th grade, except that allocations for primary prevention programs in any one county shall not be less than ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

The proposals shall include a plan by the applicant as to how its program will serve children in the service area, including all of the following information:

(a) How many children will be served each year.

(b) How each school in the service area is to be served so that children receive age-appropriate training in preschool, once during kindergarten, and at least three times during a child's school career in grades 1 through 12. Any plan proposing to deliver services in a manner other than that contained in Section 18976.1 shall provide justification for the necessity to use an alternate service delivery method. The office shall consider the alternate proposed delivery method in the review of proposals.

(c) How multicultural staffing will be developed, including plans for the hiring and training of staff.
