Report 2010-036: Indian Gaming Special Distribution Fund: Local Governments Continue to Have Difficulty Justifying Distribution Fund Grants (Release Date: February 2011)

Recommendation #15 To: Yolo, County of

To help ensure that they meet the grant requirements established in the Government Code, counties should more rigorously review applications that are to be administered and spent by an entity other than the local government that applies for the funds. Specifically, benefit committees should require that each grant application clearly show how the grant will mitigate the impact of the casino on the applicant agency.

1-Year Agency Response

The county stated that in the benefit committee's last funding cycle, the benefit committee elected to fund three applications which clearly described the impacts of tribal gaming they were seeking to mitigate, including an analysis of proportionality where appropriate. (See 2013-406, p. 68)
