"The State Executive Council shall provide guidelines for a locality to use up to 25 percent of its state funds pool allocation to create community-based services in their locality, or regionally with adjoining localities.  Services provided shall qualify for state general fund reimbursement at the localities state pool fund match rate.  The guidelines shall be in place on or before July 1, 2009."

(This amendment requires the Office of Comprehensive Services to develop guidelines that would allow localities to use up to 25 percent of their state pool allocation to develop community-based services. Localities would be eligible for reimbursement at the state matching rate for such services.)
