Office of the Revisor of Statutes


In the event federal funds become available to the state for purposes of reimbursing the several local agencies of the state for costs incurred in providing financial relief to poor persons under the liability imposed by Minnesota Statutes 1986, section 256D.18, or for reimbursing the state and counties for categorical aid assistance furnished to persons who are eligible for such assistance only because of the United States Supreme Court decision invalidating state residence requirements, the commissioner of human services is hereby designated the state agent for receipt of such funds. Upon receipt of any federal funds, the commissioner shall in a uniform and equitable manner use such funds to reimburse counties for expenditures made in providing financial relief to poor persons. The commissioner is further authorized to promulgate rules, consistent with the rules and regulations promulgated by the secretary of health, education, and welfare, governing the reimbursement provided for by this provision.
