Each district embracing a single county, and each county committee of a district embracing more than one county, has the authority to receive, from the "general expenses" category of the commission budget during any fiscal year a disbursement, calculated with reference to the amount appropriated to the district by the county.

The following formula controls disbursement of funds:


appropriation = total appropriation by state legislature

for this matching fund program

base rate =           appropriation


number of counties in state

x = amount received from county funds

y = amount of state funds commission will disburse to district

Group A = county programs receiving county funds less than or

equal to the base rate

Group B = county programs receiving county funds greater than

the base rate



For any county program in Group A:

if x < base rate, then y = x

For any county program in Group B:

if x > base rate, then y =

appropriation ‑ amount disbursed to Group A


number of counties in Group B


Example:  If a state with three counties appropriated $9000 for the matching fund program, and if County #1 appropriated no funds, County #2 $3000, and County #3 $25,000, then the commission's disbursement would proceed as follows:

County #1                0

County #2            $3000

County #3            $6000
