2. Grant categories.  Except as otherwise provided in this subchapter, the grant committee shall distribute grant money in accordance with this subsection. For purposes of this section, "category funds" means money in the fund other than money used for administrative expenses and other than funds carried forward in accordance with subsection 3. The grant committee shall annually make available for grants category funds in the following percentages for the following categorical purposes:
A. For general ATV enforcement, 40%; [2003, c. 695, Pt. B, §4 (NEW); 2003, c. 695, Pt. C, §1 (AFF).]
B. For multijurisdictional high-problem area enforcement, 50%; and [2003, c. 695, Pt. B, §4 (NEW); 2003, c. 695, Pt. C, §1 (AFF).]
C. For law enforcement officer training and equipment, 10%. [2003, c. 695, Pt. B, §4 (NEW); 2003, c. 695, Pt. C, §1 (AFF).]
[ 2003, c. 695, Pt. B, §4 (NEW); 2003, c. 695, Pt. C, §1 (AFF) .]
3. Money to be carried forward.  If the grant committee determines that not providing the full amount of category funds for a categorical purpose better serves the grant committee's strategic grant plan or if insufficient grant applications in a particular year conform to the strategic plan for a particular categorical purpose, the grant committee shall carry forward the unspent money for use in succeeding years for the same categorical purpose.
[ 2003, c. 695, Pt. B, §4 (NEW); 2003, c. 695, Pt. C, §1 (AFF) .]
