Title: CalWORKs Indian Health Clinic Program.
Author: Joaquin Arambula

AB 2795, as amended, Arambula. CalWORKs Indian Health Clinic Program. Existing federal law provides for allocation of federal funds to eligible states and tribes through the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant program. Existing state law provides for the California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids (CalWORKs) program under which, through a combination of state and county funds and federal funds received through the TANF program, each county provides cash assistance and other benefits to qualified low-income families. Existing law requires the State Department of Social Services to annually allocate appropriated funds to each federally recognized American Indian tribe with reservation lands or rancherias in the state that administers a federal tribal TANF grant program. Existing law authorizes the Director of Social Services to provide funding to Indian health clinics to provide substance abuse and mental health services, and other related services authorized under the CalWORKs program to CalWORKs applicants and recipients and tribal TANF applicants and recipients living in California.This bill would designate that funding authorization for Indian health clinics as the CalWORKs Indian Health Clinic Program. The bill would require the department, to the extent that funds are appropriated by the Legislature for this purpose, to provide semiannual prospective payments to a grantee under the program equal to no more than 90% of the total grant amount during a 12-month fiscal year. The bill would require the grant payments to be contingent upon a written request for payment from the grantee, and the submission by the grantee, and the approval by the department, of specified progress reports and budget expenditure reports. The bill would require the department to retain the final payment, pending satisfactory submission by the grantee of all progress reports required by the grant, budget expenditure reports, and an annual reconciliation report for the grant year, as specified.

Referred to Com. on HUMAN S.
