(am) The department shall reimburse each county from the appropriations under s. 20.435 (7) (b) and (o) for social services as approved by the department under ss. 46.215 (1), (2) (c) 1., and (3) and 46.22 (1) (b) 1. d. and (e) 3. a. except that no reimbursement may be made for the administration of or aid granted under s. 49.02, 2009 stats.
(d) From the appropriations under s. 20.435 (7) (b) and (o), the department shall distribute the funding for social services to county departments under ss. 46.215, 46.22, and 46.23 as provided under s. 46.40. County matching funds are required for the distributions under s. 46.40 (2), (8), and (9) (b). Each county’s required match for the distribution under s. 46.40 (2) shall be specified in a schedule established annually by the department. Each county’s required match for the distribution under s. 46.40 (8) for a year equals 9.89 percent of the total of the county’s distributions under s. 46.40 (8) for that year for which matching funds are required plus the amount the county was required by s. 46.26 (2) (c), 1985 stats., to spend for juvenile delinquency-related services from its distribution for 1987. Each county’s required match for the distribution under s. 46.40 (9) (b) for a year equals 9.89 percent of that county’s amounts described in s. 46.40 (9) (ar) (intro.) for that year. Matching funds may be from county tax levies, federal and state revenue sharing funds, or private donations to the county that meet the requirements specified in s. 51.423 (5). Private donations may not exceed 25 percent of the total county match. If the county match is less than the amount required to generate the full amount of state and federal funds distributed for this period, the decrease in the amount of state and federal funds equals the difference between the required and the actual amount of county matching funds.
(dc) The department shall prorate the amount allocated to any county department under s. 46.215 or 46.22 under par. (d) to reflect actual federal funds available.
1. If any state matching funds allocated under par. (d) to match county funds are not claimed, the funds shall be redistributed for the purposes the department designates.
2. The county allocation to match aid increases shall be included in the contract under s. 46.031 (2g) and approved by January 1 of the year for which funds are allocated, in order to generate state aid matching funds. All funds allocated under par. (d) shall be included in the contract under s. 46.031 (2g) and approved.
(a) The county treasurer and each director of a county department under s. 46.215, 46.22 or 46.23 shall monthly certify under oath to the department in such manner as the department prescribes the claim of the county for state reimbursement under this section and if the department approves such claim it shall certify to the department of administration for reimbursement to the county for amounts due under this subsection and payment claimed to be made to the counties monthly. The department may make advance payments prior to the beginning of each month equal to one-twelfth of the contracted amount.
(b) To facilitate prompt reimbursement the certificate of the department may be based on the certified statements of the county officers filed under par. (a). Funds recovered from audit adjustments from a prior fiscal year may be included in subsequent certifications only to pay counties owed funds as a result of any audit adjustment. By September 30 of each year the department shall submit a report to the appropriate standing committees under s. 13.172 (3) on funds recovered and paid out during the previous calendar year as a result of audit adjustments.
