Categorical Grant Funds

These funds support more specific or targeted health service needs.  Continued funding is not automatic.  An annual application for each type of funding must be submitted to KDHE by the deadline.


The applicant must meet local matching requirements for each type of Categorical Grant Funds requested.
Successful administration of grant funds requires that the Local Health Agency:

  1. Comply with federal and state policies and regulations.
  2. Bill Medicaid or other third party payers for services provided to eligible clients. The project must develop and implement a cost-based sliding fee schedule.  Funds generated from client fees or third party reimbursement will be used to support the maintenance of effort and/or expansion of services.
  3. Implement an annual staff education plan which identifies education needs of existing staff and plans for upgrading provider skills in identified needs areas; includes a provision for attendance at annual KDHE updates in primary service areas; and, provides for orientation and in-service training of new staff.
  4. Provide integrated services, client records and implement multi-program staff meetings.
  5. If providing multi-county services provide each member county with a copy of the Grant Application Guidelines, completed application package, related program contact, Grant Reporting Instructions, and have on file a signed memorandum of agreement with each participating county.
  6. Submit documentation of (a) progress in achieving objectives and (b) expenditures (quarterly Certified Affidavit of Expenditures).  Documentation is used to understand public health needs and services in the state, and convey information and data to relevant federal and state agencies.
  7. Maintain fiscal control and fund accounting procedures to ensure the proper disbursement and the accountability of grant funds.  Cost center accounting should be established to document revenues and expenditures for each type of funding.  The accounting system should reflect all receipts, obligations, revenues, and disbursements of grant and local funds.
  8. Provide individual employee coverage for Workers Compensation, unemployment insurance, and social security.  The agencies are also responsible for income tax deductions, other tax or payroll deductions, and providing any benefits required by law for those employees who are employed on behalf of the grant program.
  9. Please submit all grant applications to by March 14 at 5:00 pm.
