    5         Section 6. Section 393.0663, Florida Statutes, is created
    6  to read:
    7         393.0663 The Arc Dental Program.—
    8         (1) The Legislature finds that many individuals with
    9  intellectual or developmental disabilities in this state are in
   10  need of dental treatment and that such individuals often lack
   11  access to such services. The Legislature further finds that The
   12  Arc of Florida, a not-for-profit organization that maintains
   13  programs to assist in the delivery of needed services to
   14  individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities,
   15  operates The Arc of Florida Dental Program to provide dental
   16  services to such individuals. Since the 2012-2013 fiscal year,
   17  the Legislature has appropriated general revenue funds to the
   18  organization to allow it to recruit 180 dental practices to
   19  provide dental services to hundreds of individuals with
   20  intellectual or developmental disabilities. Such services
   21  include X-rays, cleanings, fluoride treatments, fillings, root
   22  canals, crowns, extractions, and dentures. The Legislature finds
   23  that it is in the public interest to establish a program to
   24  assist The Arc of Florida in providing dental services to
   25  individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
   26         (2) The Arc Dental Program is established in the Agency for
   27  Persons with Disabilities. The agency shall enter into a
   28  memorandum of agreement with and provide assistance to The Arc
   29  of Florida in operating and expanding The Arc of Florida Dental
   30  Program. The memorandum of agreement entered into between the
   31  agency and The Arc of Florida shall require quantifiable,
   32  measurable, and verifiable units of deliverables and require The
   33  Arc of Florida to submit an annual accounting of the funding
   34  allocated by the agency.
   35         (3) Beginning January 1, 2018, and each January 1
   36  thereafter, the agency shall submit a report to the Governor,
   37  the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of
   38  Representatives which summarizes contract performance by The Arc
   39  of Florida for the previous fiscal year.
   40         (4) The Legislature shall annually appropriate funds from
   41  the General Revenue Fund to the agency to fund The Arc of
   42  Florida Dental Program.
   43         Section 7. For the 2016-2017 fiscal year, and each fiscal
   44  year thereafter, the sum of $4 million in recurring funds is
   45  appropriated from the General Revenue Fund to the Agency for
   46  Persons with Disabilities for the purpose of implementing s.
   47  393.0663, Florida Statutes, as created by this act.
