"4. Effective July 1, 2012, the Department of Social Services is authorized to base approved licensed assisted living facility rates for individual facilities on an occupancy rate of 85 percent of licensed capacity, not to exceed a maximum rate of $1,193 per month, which rate is also applied to approved adult foster care homes, unless modified as indicated below. The department may add a 15 percent differential to the maximum amount for licensed assisted living facilities and adult foster care homes in Planning District Eight."

(This amendment provides $3.1 million GF each year to increase by five percent the maximum rate allowed for assisted living facilities that accept auxiliary grant recipients. The introduced budget proposes an increase of 2.1 percent on January 1, 2012, the first rise in three years.)
