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 would raise the auxiliary grant monthly rate for adult foster care, assisted living facilities and supportive house by $50 per month the first year and by $100 per month the second year of the biennium. Funding for the rate increase assumes no local match would be required. The auxiliary grant is funded by state and local funds at a match rat of 80 percent from the state general fund and 20 percent from local funds. The Governor's introduced budget provided an increase in the auxiliary grant rate of $35 per month increase beginning July 1, 2018.)
