 56.13  government, are for the best interests of the state and are not 
 56.14  inconsistent with the laws of the state relating to armories, 
 56.15  and to accept such grants in the name of the state.  The 
 56.16  Minnesota state armory building commission is designated as the

 58.20  or reimbursement of health care costs incurred at regional 
 58.21  treatment centers, state nursing homes, and other state 
 58.22  facilities as defined in section 246.50, subdivision 3, must be 
 58.23  credited to the special revenue fund created in section 16A.67, 
 58.24  subdivision 3.  Money credited to the special revenue fund must 
 58.25  be transferred to the debt service fund established in section 
 58.26  16A.67, subdivision 4, at the times and in the amounts

 59.26     Sec. 55.  [446A.065] [WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM 
 59.27  EVALUATION; FUNDING ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT.] 
 59.28     Except for grants that match United States Department of 
 59.29  Agriculture Rural Development grants, before a project may 
 59.30  receive any financial assistance under section 446A.072, the 
 59.31  authority, in consultation with the agency, shall evaluate the 
 59.32  wastewater treatment alternatives to the proposed project, 
 59.33  taking environmental and cost factors into consideration.  The 
 59.34  authority shall make written findings regarding its evaluation 
 59.35  and make the findings available to the public.  The authority 
 59.36  and the agency shall not approve a project for funding unless 
 60.1   they find that the proposed project is environmentally 
 60.2   protective and cost-effective.  This section applies to projects 
 60.3   eligible to receive funding under section 446A.072 after July 1, 
 60.4   2001, except for: 
 60.5      (1) projects included on the intended use plan required by 
 60.6   section 446A.07, subdivision 4, as of July 1, 2001; or 
 60.7      (2) projects under the authority of the metropolitan 
 60.8   council. 
 60.9      Sec. 56.  Minnesota Statutes 1999 Supplement, section 
 60.10  446A.072, subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
 60.11     Subd. 4.  [FUNDING LEVEL.] (a) The authority shall provide 
 60.12  supplemental assistance for essential project component costs as 
 60.13  certified by the commissioner of the pollution control agency 
 60.14  under section 116.182, subdivision 4.  
 60.15     (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c), a municipality may 
 60.16  not receive more than $4,000,000 under this section unless 
 60.17  specifically approved by law.  If a project would be eligible 
 60.18  for more than $4,000,000 under paragraph (e), the authority 
 60.19  shall include a description of the project and the financing 
 60.20  plan in its report on needs in subdivision 11. 
 60.21     (c) A sanitary district or multijurisdictional wastewater 
 60.22  treatment district may receive an additional $1,000,000 for each 
 60.23  municipality participating up to a maximum grant of $8,000,000, 
 60.24  unless a higher amount is specifically approved by law.  If a 
 60.25  project would be eligible for more than $8,000,000 under 
 60.26  paragraph (e), the authority shall include a description of the 
 60.27  project and the financing plan in its report on needs in 
 60.28  subdivision 11. 
 60.29     (d) The authority shall provide supplemental assistance for 
 60.30  up to one-half of the eligible grant funding level determined by 
 60.31  the United States Department of Agriculture Rural Development 
 60.32  funding for projects listed on the agency's project priority 
 60.33  list, in priority order.  In the case of multijurisdictional 
 60.34  projects when the United States Department of Agriculture Rural 
 60.35  Development is unable to fully fund up to one-half of the 
 60.36  eligible grant amount, the authority may provide up to an 
 61.1   additional $1,000,000 for each municipality participating up to 
 61.2   the limits under paragraph (c) but not to exceed the maximum 
 61.3   grant level determined by the United States Department of 
 61.4   Agriculture Rural Development as needed to keep the project 
 61.5   affordable.  For municipalities that are not eligible for United 
 61.6   States Department of Agriculture Rural Development funding for 
 61.7   wastewater, the authority shall provide supplemental assistance 
 61.8   for:  (1) essential project component costs calculated by first 
 61.9   determining the amount needed to reduce a municipality's annual 
 61.10  residential sewer costs to 1.4 percent of the municipality's 
 61.11  median household income or $25 per month per household, 
 61.12  whichever is greater, and then multiplying that amount by 80 
 61.13  percent to determine the actual award amount to supplement loans 
 61.14  under section 446A.07; and (2) up to 50 percent of the 
 61.15  incremental costs specifically identified by the agency as being 
 61.16  attributable to more stringent wastewater standards required to 
 61.17  protect outstanding resource value waters or outstanding 
 61.18  international resource value waters. 
 61.19     (e) Notwithstanding paragraph (b), in the event that a 
 61.20  municipality's monthly residential sewer service charges average 
 61.21  above $50, the authority will provide 90 percent of the grant 
 61.22  amount needed to reduce the average monthly sewer service charge 
 61.23  to $50, provided the project is ranked in the top 50 percentile 
 61.24  of the agency's intended use plan. 
 61.25     (f) The authority shall provide supplemental assistance to 
 61.26  a municipality that would not otherwise qualify for supplemental 
 61.27  assistance if: 
 61.28     (1) the municipality voluntarily accepts a sewer connection 
 61.29  from another governmental unit to serve residential, industrial, 
 61.30  or commercial developments that were completed before March 1, 
 61.31  1996, or are on lots whose plats were recorded before that date; 
 61.32  and 
 61.33     (2) fees charged by the municipality for the connection 
 61.34  must take into account state and federal grants used by the 
 61.35  municipality for the construction of the treatment plant. 
 61.36  The amount of supplemental assistance under this paragraph must 
 62.1   be sufficient to reduce debt service payments under section 
 62.2   446A.07 to an extent equivalent to a zero percent loan in an 
 62.3   amount up to the other governmental unit's project costs 
 62.4   necessary for connection.  Eligibility for supplemental 
 62.5   assistance under this paragraph ends three years after the 
 62.6   agency certifies that the connection has met the operational 
 62.7   performance standards established by the agency. 
 62.8      Sec. 57.  Minnesota Statutes 1998, section 462A.202, 
 62.9   subdivision 2, is amended to read: 
 62.10     Subd. 2.  [TRANSITIONAL AND SUPPORTIVE HOUSING.] The agency 
 62.11  may make loans with or without interest to cities and counties 
 62.12  to finance the acquisition, improvement, and rehabilitation of 
 62.13  existing housing properties or the acquisition, site 
 62.14  improvement, and development of new properties for the purposes 
 62.15  of providing transitional housing or supportive housing, upon 
 62.16  terms and conditions the agency determines.  For purposes of 
 62.17  this section, "supportive housing" means housing that is 
 62.18  provided for a limited duration based on the resident's needs 
 62.19  and progress and that provides or arranges for services designed 
 62.20  to assist residents in making the transition to independent 
 62.21  living.  Preference must be given to cities that propose to 
 62.22  acquire properties being sold by the resolution trust 
 62.23  corporation or the department of housing and urban development.  
 62.24  Loans under this subdivision are subject to the restrictions in 
 62.25  subdivision 7.
