of the youth intervention program is to provide an ongoing stable funding source to
community-based early intervention programs for youth. Program design may be different
for the grantees depending on youth service needs of the communities being served.

Sec. 2.

Minnesota Statutes 2010, section 299A.73, subdivision 2, is amended to read:

Subd. 2.


Applications for a grant-in-aid shall be made by the
administering agency to the commissioner.

The grant-in-aid is contingent upon the agency having obtained from the community
in which the youth intervention program is established local matching money two times
the amount of the grant that is sought. The matching requirement is intended to leverage
the investment of state and community dollars in supporting the efforts of the grantees to
provide early intervention services to youth and their families.

The commissioner shall provide the application form, procedures for making
application form, criteria for review of the application, and kinds of contributions in
addition to cash that qualify as local matching money. No grant to any agency may
