AFFIRMING TODD COUNTY’S ENDORSEMENT OF THE 

REVISED COUNTY 

PROGRAM AID FORMULA DEVELOPED BY THE ASSOCIATION OF MINNESOTA’S COUNTIES’ COUNTY PROGRAM AID WORK GROUP

WHEREAS, Minnesota’s counties are mandated by the state to provide essential services in many program areas including human services, public safety, and transportation; and

WHEREAS, counties depend on County Program Aid (“CPA”) for the financial sustainability of these state-mandated, county-administered services; and

WHEREAS, the current structure of the CPA formula, pursuant MS Chapter 447A.0124, creates considerable volatility in the fund’s distribution, interfering with counties’ abilities to accurately budget for essential services; and

WHEREAS, the current formula’s inadequacies have also resulted in the dramatic reduction of funding for one-third of counties, that have lost at least 50 percent of their funding since 2005; and

WHEREAS, despite fluctuations over the past ten years, the state appropriation to the 2015 CPA is equal to the 2005 appropriation making it greatly depressed in terms of inflation; and

WHEREAS, a revised CPA formula in conjunction with additional funding will enable counties to continue to provide quality services that may also translate into reductions in county levies, decreasing the tax burden of Minnesota residents; and

WHEREAS, in October 2014, the Association of Minnesota Counties assembled the CPA Work Group including leadership from twenty counties and representatives from the Metropolitan Inter-County Association and the Minnesota Rural Counties Caucus to analyze and develop a CPA formula that reflects the pressing needs of Minnesota’s counties; and

WHEREAS, the CPA Work Group unanimously approved a revised CPA formula that benefits all Minnesota counties by reducing volatility and ensuring a fair distribution of CPA; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Association of Minnesota Counties that represents the diverse interests of Minnesota’s 87 counties, voted to support the proposed CPA formula revisions.

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Todd County Board of Commissioners endorses the following revisions to the Minnesota County Program Aid formula:

•A funding increase of $40 million;

•The creation of a funding floor that guarantees each county $350,000 in tax base equalization aid (“TBEA”);

•Adjustments to the TBEA formula factors to slow down counties’ loss of TBEA funding, including; an increase of the per capita factor to $190 and a decrease of the county adjusted net tax capacity (ANTC) factor to nine percent (9%);

•The elimination of special funds and transition aid; and

The creation of a five percent (5%) cap on annual CPA losses; ensuring no county will lose more than five percent (5%) of its funding each year.
