(1) 25 percent must be allocated on the basis of the number of reports of suspected vulnerable adult maltreatment under sections 626.557 and 626.5572, when the county or tribe is responsible as determined by the most recent data of the commissioner; and
(2) 75 percent must be allocated on the basis of the number of screened-in reports for adult protective services or vulnerable adult maltreatment investigations under sections 626.557 and 626.5572, when the county or tribe is responsible as determined by the most recent data of the commissioner.
(b) The commissioner is precluded from changing the formula under this subdivision or recommending a change to the legislature without public review and input.
The commissioner shall make allocations for the state fiscal year starting July 1, 2019, and to each county board or tribal government on or before October 10, 2019. The commissioner shall make allocations under subdivision 1 to each county board or tribal government each year thereafter on or before July 10.
Money received under this section must be used for staffing for protection of vulnerable adults or to expand adult protective services. Money must not be used to supplant current county or tribe expenditures for these purposes.
