Description of Subjects/Issues This rule implements Senate Bill 15-240, which was signed into law on May 1, 2015, and requires that rules be promulgated on or before July 1, 2016 for the block distribution of state moneys to Independent Living Centers. The rule outlines how the additional $830,000 that was allocated by the State Legislature will be distributed to the Centers for Independent Living under the funding formula that the Centers agreed to in October 2015. The Centers agreed to a weighted formula that divides county disability population, plus county population, and land area by population to determine the funding amount for each county. The Centers also agreed to explore setting aside $400,000 to establish a Division of Independent Living in State Government. The program will be meeting its fiduciary requirements by having this rule promulgated.
Purpose/Objective of Rule The rule [is required by] Senate Bill 15-240, which was signed into law on May 1, 2015. [Under S.B. 15-240, the Centers for Independent Living (CILs) in Colorado are receiving additional funding allocations within two years. In State Fiscal Year (SFY) 2016 the funding will be increased by $2,000,000. This is distributed with $1,585,000 being allocated and disbursed to the CILs as base building funding, and the remaining $415,000 to be disbursed according to the Funding Formula that the CILs created in October 2015 in accordance with S.B. 15-240. This additional $2,000,000 will be added to the starting amount in SFY 2017 for a beginning amount of $4,831,945; $4,416,945 is base funding and $415,000 is funding formula amount.] [In SFY 2017 there will be additional funds allocated to the CILs.
