Section 11814. (Amended by Stats. 2004, Ch. 862, Sec. 83.)
Cite as: Cal. Health & Safety Code §11814.

(a)The department shall issue allocations to counties for alcohol and other drug programs.

(b)In issuing allocations to counties, it is the intent of the Legislature that counties shall allocate all funds received pursuant to state and federal laws and regulations.

(c)The department shall estimate an allocation of state and federal funds available for each county to implement the approved county plan, executed negotiated net amount contract, and Drug Medi-Cal contract, whichever is applicable. In making allocations, the department shall base its allocations on the population of each county. However, the department shall assure that each small population county receives a minimum amount of funds to provide adequate alcohol and other drug services. The department may take into account other factors in making the allocations if the department finds that the factors relate to the level of alcohol and other drug problems in the county. No later than 45 days after introduction of the Budget Bill, the department shall notify each county regarding its preliminary allocation under this division, pending enactment of the Budget Bill. The 1984–85 fiscal year shall establish the base funding for the county alcohol and drug allocation for local programs. Beginning with the 1985–86 fiscal year, cost-of-living adjustments, if granted, shall be considered as tied to the base allocation established in the 1984–85 fiscal year, plus any subsequent cost-of-living adjustments. The department shall notify each county regarding its final allocation after enactment of the Budget Bill.

(d)Notwithstanding any other provision in this section, the director may reduce funding below the base year amounts of counties that underspend their allocation for two consecutive years by more than 5 percent. Any reduction shall be limited to the difference between 5 percent of the allocation and the total amount unspent. The amounts underspent shall be determined based on the most recent cost reports.
