  208.819.  Transition grants created, eligibility, amount — information and training developed — rulemaking authority. — 1.  Subject to appropriations, persons institutionalized in nursing homes who are MO HealthNet-eligible and who wish to move back into the community shall be eligible for a one-time transition grant.  The transition grant shall be limited to up to twenty-four hundred dollars to offset the initial down payments, setup costs, and other expenditures associated with housing a senior or person with disabilities needing home and community-based services as such person moves out of a nursing home.  Such grants shall be established and administered by the division of senior and disability services in consultation with the department of social services.  The division of senior and disability services and the department of social services shall cooperate in actively seeking federal and private grant moneys to further fund this program; except that, such federal and private grant moneys shall not limit the general assembly's ability to appropriate moneys for the transition grants.

  2.  The department of health and senior services and the department of mental health shall work together to develop information and training on community-based service options for residents transitioning into the community and shall promulgate rules as necessary.  Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536 and, if applicable, section 536.028.  This section and chapter 536 are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536 to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2009, shall be invalid and void.
