grants to rural areas shall be given to community health boards, nonprofits, and tribal nations
that expand services within regional partnerships that provide evidence-based home-visiting
programs. The commissioner shall allocate at least 75 percent of the grant money awarded
each grant cycle to evidence-based home-visiting programs and up to 25 percent of the grant
