These funds shall be distributed as soon as practicable after the effective date of this act and shall not supplant existing resources.
(b)25 percent shall be allocated through a competitive grant process developed by the Legal Services Trust Fund Commission of the State Bar to award grants to qualified legal service projects and support centers to provide eviction defense, other tenant defense assistance in landlord-tenant rental disputes, or services to prevent foreclosures for homeowners, as set forth in this provision, to meet the needs of tenants not addressed by the formula provided in subdivision (a). The grant process shall ensure that any qualified legal service project or support center that received funding pursuant to subdivision (a) may only receive funding pursuant to this subdivision if that qualified legal service project or support center demonstrates that funds received under this subdivision will be not be used to supplant existing resources, and will be used to provide services to tenants not otherwise served by that qualified legal service project or support center. The commission shall make the grant award determinations. In awarding these grants, preference shall be given to qualified legal aid agencies that serve rural or underserved communities. Any funding not allocated pursuant to this competitive grant process shall be distributed pursuant to subdivision (a), except that there shall be no minimum funding amount for these funds.
3.Funds appropriated in Schedule (2) are available for encumbrance or expenditure until December 31, 2024.
4.The State Bar shall annually provide to the Judicial Council a report that includes funding allocations, annual expenditures, and program outcomes by service area, and service provider for all Equal Access Fund and federal funding.
