Subdivision 1.County administration.

Every county agency shall provide general assistance to persons residing within its jurisdiction who meet the need requirements of sections 256D.01 to 256D.21. General assistance shall be administered by the county agencies according to law and rules promulgated by the commissioner pursuant to sections 14.001 to 14.69.

Subd. 2.Assistance standards.

State aid shall be paid for all general assistance and grants up to the standards of section 256D.01, subdivision 1a, and according to procedures established by the commissioner, except as provided for under section 256.017.

Subd. 2a.County agency options.

Any county agency may, from its own resources, make payments of general assistance: (1) at a standard higher than that established by the commissioner without reference to the standards of section 256D.01, subdivision 1; or (2) to persons not meeting the eligibility standards set forth in section 256D.05, subdivision 1, but for whom the aid would further the purposes established in the general assistance program according to rules adopted by the commissioner according to the Administrative Procedure Act. The Minnesota Department of Human Services may maintain client records and issue these payments, providing the cost of benefits is paid by the counties to the Department of Human Services according to section 256.01.
