The allocation is based on the number of State-subsidized centers located in each county and the contract maximum reimbursable amount (MRA). Service earnings reflect actual service performance provided by contractors in each county. The allocation formula establishes a base allocation of $10,000 for all participating LPCs in order to provide a reasonable minimum funding level for small counties that might otherwise have difficulty maintaining the viability of this program.
