(b) Add sufficient aid funds that are available under this subdivision to raise the amount
of the county or participating portion of a county with the lowest value calculated according

additional aid funds by the population of the county or participating portion of a county.

county with the next highest value calculated in paragraph (a) to raise it and the amount of
counties and participating portions of counties with lower values calculated in paragraph

value, until reaching an amount where funds available under this subdivision are no longer
sufficient to raise the amount of a county or participating portion of a county and the amount
of counties and participating portions of counties with lower values up to the amount of the
next highest county or participating portion of a county.

(d) If the point is reached using the process in paragraphs (b) and (c) at which the
remaining aid funds under this subdivision are not adequate for raising the amount of a
county or participating portion of a county and all counties and participating portions of
counties with amounts of lower value to the amount of the county or participating portion
of a county with the next highest value, those funds are to be divided on a per capita basis
for all counties or participating portions of counties that received aid funds under the
calculation in paragraphs (b) and (c).
