Pending final passage of the applicable General Appropriations Act, the commissioner shall notify each eligible local health agency as to the priority health services and the amount of public health priority funds estimated to be payable during the next calendar year to provide these services. On or before a date set by the commissioner, the health officer of each local health agency, or in his absence another person designated by the official body under which the local health agency operates, may submit an application for public health priority funds for the following calendar year. The application shall include the budget of the agency, the plan of work and such other information as the commissioner may require, to be presented in a form prescribed by the commissioner. It shall be the responsibility of the applicant to describe in detail in the application how all the public health priority services will be met by the local health agency. The application shall be certified, under the penalties of perjury, as true to the best knowledge of the person making it.
