65-4413. State participation in financing; grants, computation of amounts; rules and regulations; payments, when; proration of insufficient funds. (a) For the purpose of insuring that adequate community intellectual disability services are available to all inhabitants of Kansas, the state shall participate in the financing of community facilities for people with intellectual disability in the manner provided by this section.

(b) Subject to the provisions of appropriations acts and the provisions of K.S.A. 65-4414, and amendments thereto, the secretary shall make grants to community facilities for people with intellectual disability based on full-time equivalent clients served and per diem amounts per client as provided in this section. The secretary, in accordance with the provisions of this section, shall adopt rules and regulations (1) defining full-time equivalent clients and prescribing the method of computing full-time equivalent clients and (2) establishing statewide per diem amounts per client for the purposes of determining grants to community facilities for people with intellectual disability. A client accepted for a program by a facility shall constitute a full-time equivalent client only if the client was accepted by the facility on a first-come, first-serve basis in order of the time at which an application for admission was made to such facility on behalf of the client, except that a client accepted for a program by a facility on other than a first-come, first-serve basis because of a family crisis occasioned by family circumstances shall constitute a full-time equivalent client. The secretary shall adopt rules and regulations to define the parameters for agency boards of directors to follow in identifying "family crisis occasioned by family circumstances." Such rules and regulations shall require that each agency board of directors establish standards and guidelines, within parameters defined by the rules and regulations, which are consistent with the needs of clients and their families. The standards and guidelines established by the agency board of directors shall specify to the extent known the types of family crises most likely to necessitate admission to a facility and shall establish criteria for determining the appropriateness of such admission. In addition the rules and regulations shall establish procedures for review by the secretary of the appropriateness of any such admission.

(c) The secretary shall make grant payments each calendar quarter. Subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 65-4414, and amendments thereto: (1) The first year of per diem payments made under this section shall be based on the number of clients served during the base calendar year 1983; and (2) payments in subsequent years shall be based on actual clients served during the calendar year immediately preceding the year in which such grant payments are to be made. In the event that sufficient moneys to pay to all community facilities for people with intellectual disability, the full amount of grant payments determined in accordance with the number of actual clients served thereby and the current per diem amounts per client for any calendar quarter have not been appropriated or are not available, the entire amount available such calendar quarter for grant payments shall be prorated by the secretary among all the community facilities for people with intellectual disability applying for such grant payments in proportion to the amount each such community facility for people with intellectual disability would have received if sufficient moneys had been appropriated and available therefor, subject to the provisions of K.S.A. 65-4414, and amendments thereto. A client funded by special state funding shall not constitute a client for purposes of per diem funding under this section.

(d) The secretary shall adopt rules and regulations for the administration of the provisions of the Kansas community facilities for people with intellectual disability assistance act.
