Upon receipt of any such money, the secretary shall remit the entire amount to the state treasurer in accordance with the provisions of K.S.A. 75-4215, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of each such remittance, the state treasurer shall deposit the entire amount in the state treasury to the credit of the Kansas juvenile delinquency prevention trust fund.

(d) Grants made to programs pursuant to this section shall be based on the number of persons to be served and such other requirements as may be established by the Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention in guidelines established and promulgated to regulate grants made under authority of this section. The guidelines may include requirements for grant applications, organizational characteristics, reporting and auditing criteria and such other standards for eligibility and accountability as are deemed advisable by the Kansas advisory group on juvenile justice and delinquency prevention.

(e) On or before the 10th of each month, the director of accounts and reports shall transfer from the state general fund to the Kansas juvenile delinquency prevention trust fund interest earnings based on:

(1) The average daily balance of moneys in the Kansas juvenile delinquency prevention trust fund for the preceding month; and

(2) the net earnings rate of the pooled money investment portfolio for the preceding month.

(f) On and after the effective date of this act, the Kansas endowment for youth trust fund created by this section prior to amendment by this act is hereby redesignated as the Kansas juvenile delinquency prevention trust fund. On and after the effective date of this act, whenever the Kansas endowment for youth trust fund created by this section prior to amendment by this act, or words of like effect, is referred to or designated by a statute, contract or other document such reference or designation shall be deemed to apply to the Kansas juvenile delinquency prevention trust fund.
