Section 306.051 | Use of funds expended for social services as local match to obtain funds for transit system.


(A) As used in this section, "social services" includes all of the following:

(1) Services for senior citizens;

(2) Services for persons with developmental disabilities;

(3) Services funded in whole or in part with federal funds provided for social services programs, including the community development block grant program established under Title I of the "Housing and Community Development Act of 1974," 42 U.S.C. 5301 et seq.;

(4) Other services that have the purpose of assisting the overall social well being of individuals, families, and communities.

(B) Subject to division (C) of this section and regardless of whether a county transit system is operated by a county transit board or board of county commissioners, funds that are appropriated by a board of county commissioners and expended for social services in the county served by the board may be used as the local match needed to obtain state or federal funds available for the county transit system.

(C) Funds raised by a county tax levy may be used as local matching funds under division (B) of this section only to the extent that such use of the funds is consistent with the purpose for which the tax was levied. Funds may be used as local matching funds under division (B) of this section only to the extent that such use of the funds does not jeopardize the state's or county's eligibility to receive federal funds for one or more purposes. Prior to the use of funds raised by a county tax levy being used for purposes of division (B) of this section, the county transit system shall enter into an agreement with the local government department, agency, board, or commission responsible for administering those funds. The agreement shall establish the terms and conditions of the use of the funds by the county transit system as local matching funds.
