A bill for an act
relating to human services; appropriating money for programs related to reducing
fetal alcohol syndrome.



(a) $1,600,000 is appropriated for the biennium beginning July 1, 2014, from
the general fund to the commissioner of human services for a grant to the Minnesota
Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS). Of the grant money dispersed by
MOFAS, at least $360,000 must be used to support nonprofit Fetal Alcohol Spectrum
Disorders (FASD) outreach prevention programs in Olmsted County. Other grant
recipients must be selected from communities which are not currently served by federal
substance abuse prevention and treatment block grant funds.

(b) Grant money must be used to reduce the incidence of FASD and other prenatal
drug related effects in children in Minnesota by identifying and serving pregnant women
suspected of or known to use or abuse alcohol or other drugs. Grant recipients must
provide intensive services to chemically dependent women in order to increase positive
birth outcomes. The organization may retain eight percent of the grant money for
administrative costs.

(c) A grant recipient must report to the commissioner of human services annually
by January 15 on the services and programs funded by the appropriation. The report
must include measurable outcomes, including the number of pregnant women served and
toxic-free babies born in the previous year.
