Subdivision 1. Payment.
Payments to designated shelter facilities must be in the form of
a grant. Designated shelter facilities may submit requests for payment monthly based on their
expenses. The process for the submission of payments and for the submission of requests may be
established by the director. Upon approval of the request for payment by the center, payments
shall be made directly to designated shelter facilities from grant funds on behalf of women and
their children who reside in the shelter facility. Payments made to a designated shelter facility
must not exceed the grant amount for that facility unless approved by the director. These payments
must not affect the eligibility of individuals who reside in shelter facilities for public assistance
benefits, except when required by federal law or regulation.
Subd. 2. Reserve grant amount.
The center shall calculate the grant amount for each
designated shelter facility. This calculation may be based upon program type, average occupancy
rates, and licensed capacity limits. The total of all grant amounts shall not exceed the legislative
Subd. 3. Accountability.
Shelter facilities must comply with reporting requirements and
any other measures imposed by the Minnesota Center for Crime Victim Services to improve
accountability and program outcomes including, but not limited to, information on all restricted or
unrestricted fund balances.
