The fund consists of revenues transferred from the General Local Government Fund pursuant to section 5681, subsection 5-D and any funds received as contributions from private and public sources. Eligible investment earnings credited to the assets of the fund become part of the assets of the fund. Any balance remaining in the fund at the end of any fiscal year must be carried forward to the next fiscal year. The fund is a dedicated, special revenue account.
Sec. 5. 30-A MRSA 6204, first , as amended by PL 2009, c. 213, Pt. S, 9 and affected by 16, is further amended to read:
Except as otherwise provided by this section and section 5681, subsection 3, the fund is available solely for grants for qualifying projects. The department may use the fund to cover its costs of administration, including contracting for services to administer the grants.
This bill changes the funding for the Fund for the Efficient Delivery of Local and Regional Services from General Fund appropriations to monthly transfers of 2% of all receipts transferred to the Local Government Fund before the distributions to municipalities.
