§ 15.112. Uses of funding authorized by the act.
The agency may utilize funding authorized by the act to pay for activities, including the following:
(1) Administering protective services plans as described in § 15.12(b) (relating to administrative functions and responsibilities of area agencies on aging).
(2) Receiving reports and maintaining records of reports as provided under § § 15.23 and 15.10115.105 (relating to receiving reports; general agency responsibility; and confidentiality).
(3) Conducting investigations under § § 15.4115.47 (relating to investigating reports of need for protective services).
(4) Conducting assessments and developing service plans under § § 15.92 and 15.93 (relating to assessment; and service plan).
(5) Petitioning the court under § § 15.6115.63 and 15.7115.75 (relating to agency access to older persons and records; and emergency intervention).
(6) Providing emergency involuntary intervention under § § 15.7115.75.
(7) Arranging for available services needed to carry out service plans, which may include, as appropriate, arranging for services for other household members to reduce, correct or eliminate abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment of an older adult. The inclusion of services needed by other household members in the service plan will allow the agency to arrange for the provision of those services through public and private entitlements or resources for which the individuals are or may be eligible. The inclusion does not obligate the agency to pay for the services or to provide services which are not available from another appropriate provider.
(8) Purchasing, on a temporary basis, services determined by the service plan to be necessary to reduce, correct or eliminate abuse, neglect, exploitation or abandonment of an older adult when the services are not available within the existing resources of the agency or another appropriate provider. Funding authorized by the act and expended under an area agency on aging protective services plan may not be used for the purchase of services which are already financed through other State-administered plans for local service delivery or through local public and private resources under those plans except with the specific prior approval of the Department. The protective services plan shall identify the agencys proposed expenditures for activities under this paragraph. The agency shall insure that every attempt has been made to provide the service through existing agency resources, appropriate utilization of other providers and the coordination of public and private entitlements and resources prior to entering into the purchase of services for a protective services client.
