48-938.Federal grants to individuals and families; powers and duties of governor; amount of state share; maximum amount, determination. Whenever the president of the United States, pursuant to the federal Robert T. Stafford disaster relief and emergency assistance act and the federal disaster relief and emergency assistance amendments of 1988, has declared a major disaster to exist in this state, the governor is hereby authorized to apply for, accept and disburse grants from the federal government pursuant to section 411 of the federal disaster relief and emergency assistance amendments of 1988, in order to meet the disaster-related necessary expenses or serious needs of individuals or families in this state who are adversely affected by such major disaster which cannot be met adequately from other means. In order to implement and administer such grant program and to make financial grants thereunder, the governor is hereby authorized to enter into an agreement with the federal government, or any officer or agency thereof, pledging the state to provide the state share of such financial grants, subject to the allocation of funds for such purpose by the state finance council from the state emergency fund, as provided in K.S.A. 75-3713 and amendments thereto. The state share of any grant made pursuant to this section to meet disaster-related necessary expenses and serious needs of individuals and families in this state shall not exceed 25% of the actual cost of such expenses and needs as authorized by section 411 of the federal disaster relief and emergency assistance amendments of 1988 and in any event shall not exceed, in the aggregate to any one individual or family with respect to any one major disaster, the maximum amount determined for the current fiscal year under this section. The maximum amount of the state share of such financial grants under this section for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1990, shall be $2,500. The maximum amount for each fiscal year thereafter shall be determined by the adjutant general on or before July 1 of such fiscal year and shall be equal to the maximum amount for the preceding fiscal year plus an additional amount determined by the adjutant general to be proportionally equal to the increase, if any, by which the consumer price index for all urban consumers published by the United States department of labor for the preceding calendar year, exceeds that index for the second preceding calendar year.
