3709.32 Conditions for payment of state health district subsidy funds.

The president of each board of health providing health services in one or more health districts and the chief executive officer of each health department providing health services in one or more health districts shall, on or before the first day of March of each year, certify the amounts expended during the preceding calendar year which qualify for state health district subsidy funds under section 3701.342 of the Revised Code and rules adopted by the director of health . The director of health shall certify the amount payable under the state health district subsidy funds distribution formula adopted by the director of health under section 3701.342 of the Revised Code to the director of budget and management for payment. Payment shall not be made unless:

(A) The board or department has provided such information concerning services and costs as is requested by the director of health;

(B) The certificate of the board of health or health department has been endorsed by the director of health;

(C) The board or department has complied with section 3701.342 of the Revised Code and rules adopted by the director of health;

(D) The municipal corporations and townships composing the health district have provided adequate local funding for public health services. The director of health shall determine what constitutes adequate local funding, and may grant an exception to this requirement to a municipal corporation or township if unusually severe economic conditions prevent it from receiving adequate tax revenues to help support minimally acceptable public health services.

No state health district subsidy funds shall be granted to any board or department that decreases its appropriation for public health services in anticipation of using state funds to provide public health services normally supported by local revenues.
