The amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid shall be distributed on the following schedule: on or before August 1, 45% of the total amount due; September 1, 30% of the total amount due; October 1, 15% of the total amount due; November 1, 5% of the total amount due; December 1 for municipalities operating under a calendar fiscal year, 5% of the total amount due; and June 1 for municipalities operating under the State fiscal year, 5% of the total amount due.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, from the amounts received from the appropriation to the Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid program and received from amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account, each municipality shall be required to distribute to each fire district within its boundaries the amount received by the fire district from the Supplementary Aid for Fire Services program pursuant to the provisions of the fiscal year 1995 annual appropriations act, P.L.1994, c.67, less an amount proportional to reductions in the combined total amount received by the municipality from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid and from the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” since fiscal year 2008.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid shall be distributed in the same amounts, and to the same municipalities that received funding pursuant to the previous fiscal year’s annual appropriations act; provided further, however, that from the amount hereinabove appropriated there are transferred to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account such amounts as were determined for fiscal year 2003, fiscal year 2006, fiscal year 2007, fiscal year 2008, fiscal year 2009, fiscal year 2010, fiscal year 2012, fiscal year 2013, fiscal year 2014, fiscal year 2015, and fiscal year 2016 pursuant to subsection e. of section 2 of P.L.1997, c.167 (C.52:27D-439), as amended by P.L.1999, c.168; and except that the amount of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid received by a municipality shall be increased by such amounts of Transitional Aid to Localities deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services in the previous fiscal year.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government Services shall take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that proportional amounts of the Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid and the amounts transferred from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to the “Energy Tax Receipts Property Tax Relief Fund” account appropriated to offset losses from business personal property tax that would have otherwise been used for the support of public schools will be used to reduce the school property tax levy for those affected school districts with the remaining State Aid used as municipal property tax relief. The chief financial officer of the municipality shall pay to the school districts such amounts as may be due by December 31.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the release of the final 5% or $500, whichever is greater, of the total annual amount due for the current fiscal year from Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to municipalities is subject to the following condition: the municipality shall submit to the Director of the Division of Local Government Services a report describing the municipality's compliance with the "Best Practices Inventory" established by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services and shall receive at least a minimum score on such inventory as determined by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services; provided, however, that the director may take into account the particular circumstances of a municipality in computing such score. In preparing the Best Practices Inventory, the director shall identify best municipal practices in the areas of general administration, fiscal management, and operational activities, as well as the particular circumstances of a municipality, in determining the minimum score acceptable for the release of the final 5% or $500, whichever is greater, of the total annual amount due for the current fiscal year, but in no event shall amounts be withheld with respect to municipal practices occurring prior to the issuance of the Best Practices Inventory unless related to a municipal practice identified in the Best Practices Inventory established in the previous fiscal year.

The Director of the Division of Local Government Services may permit any municipality that received Regional Efficiency Aid Program funds pursuant to the annual appropriations act for fiscal year 2010, P.L.2009, c.68, to use a portion of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid to provide “Regional Efficiency Aid Program” benefits pursuant to P.L.1999, c.61 (C.54:4-8.76 et seq.).

The amount hereinabove appropriated for the County Prosecutor Funding Initiative Pilot Program shall be distributed as follows: Camden County, $895,000; Essex County, $1,811,000; Hudson County, $802,500; and Mercer County, $491,500.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Consolidation Implementation shall be allocated to provide reimbursement to local government units that consolidate pursuant to any law, including but not limited to P.L.2007, c.63 (C.40A:65-1 et seq.) and P.L.2009, c. 118 (C.54:1-86 et seq.), or to a municipality that is wholly annexed by another municipality pursuant to N.J.S.40A:7-1 et seq., for non-recurring costs that the Director of the Division of Local Government Services, or in the case of a school district consolidation the Commissioner of Education, determines to be necessary to implement such consolidation or annexation, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting; provided, however, that in addition to the amounts hereinabove appropriated, there are appropriated such additional amounts as are determined to be necessary for reimbursement of non-recurring costs associated with local government unit consolidations, subject to the approval of the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities is subject to the following condition: a municipality that has not yet applied for Transitional Aid for 2015 as of the effective date of this act may file an application on the appropriate forms prescribed by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services and such application shall be considered by the director for a determination of eligibility for Transitional Aid for the current fiscal year.

Of the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities, an amount may be allocated by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services to provide short-term financial assistance to a local government unit that is determined by the director to be experiencing financial distress caused by the destruction or loss of a major local business ratable. For purposes of this paragraph, a “major local business ratable” means one or more related parcels of property owned by a single business entity, classified as commercial or industrial, which comprised the largest assessed valuation of any one or more line items of taxable property in a municipality, or generated an annual PILOT payment in excess of 10% of the total municipal levy, or is otherwise determined by the director to be of such significance to a municipality that its destruction or loss has resulted in financial distress; provided, however, that notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the Director of the Division of Local Government Services may direct that part of any such allocation be paid to an affected school district or county, or to both, in the same manner as if the award of Transitional Aid were raised as revenue from the municipal tax levy; and provided further that a local government unit determined to be experiencing financial distress because of the loss or destruction of a major local business ratable shall not be required to be subject to any additional conditions, requirements, orders, or other operational efficiency or oversight measures authorized pursuant to P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D-118.42a), except as determined to be appropriate by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services.

The amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities is subject to the following condition: notwithstanding the provisions of R.S.43:21-14, or any other law or regulation to the contrary, the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development, in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is authorized to enter into individualized payment plan agreements with municipalities that receive Transitional Aid for the reimbursement of unemployment benefits paid to former employees of such municipal government units, at reasonable interest rates based on current market conditions, and on such other terms and conditions as may be determined to be appropriate by the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development. Any municipality that enters into an individualized payment plan agreement pursuant to this section shall be required to expend all funds budgeted for this activity remaining as of the last day of its budget year for the repayment of outstanding obligations under the plan.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, the amount hereinabove appropriated for Transitional Aid to Localities shall be allocated to provide short-term financial assistance where needed to help a municipality that is in serious fiscal distress meet immediate budgetary needs and regain financial stability. A municipality shall be deemed to be eligible for transitional aid if it is identified by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services as experiencing serious fiscal distress where the director determines that, despite local officials having implemented substantive cost reduction strategies, there continue to exist conditions of serious fiscal distress, which may include but shall not be limited to: substantial structural or accumulated deficits; ongoing reliance on non-recurring revenues; limited ability to raise supplemental non-property tax revenues; extraordinary demands for public safety appropriations; and other factors indicating a constrained ability to raise sufficient revenues to meet budgetary requirements that substantially jeopardizes the fiscal integrity of the municipality. Municipalities seeking transitional aid shall file an application on a form prescribed by the director, which application, among other things, shall set forth the minimum criteria that must be met in order for an application to be considered by the director for a determination of eligibility. The director shall determine whether a municipality which files an application meeting such minimum criteria is in serious fiscal distress, and, if so, what amount of transitional aid should be provided to address the municipality’s serious fiscal distress. The transitional aid shall be provided to the municipality subject to the provisions of subsection a. of section 1 of P.L.2011, c.144 (C.52:27D-118.42a); provided, however, that an amount of Transitional Aid to Localities as determined by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services for a municipality may be deemed to constitute Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid in an amount not in excess of the amount of Transitional Aid to Localities such municipality received in the previous fiscal year and shall not reduce the amount of Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid such municipality shall receive for the current fiscal year. Provided, however, if the Director of the Division of Local Government Services deems an amount of Transitional Aid to Localities for a municipality as constituting Consolidated Municipal Property Tax Relief Aid pursuant to this provision, that municipality is not relieved from compliance with the requirements for transitional aid.

Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection d. of section 29 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-29) or subsection d. of section 30 of P.L.1999, c.152 (C.13:8C-30), or any law or regulation to the contrary, all payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by the State and non-profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be retained by the municipality and not apportioned in the same manner as the general tax rate of the municipality.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, payments to municipalities in lieu of taxes for lands acquired by the State and non-profit organizations for recreation and conservation purposes shall be provided only to municipalities whose payments received in fiscal year 2010 exceeded $5,000 and shall be provided at two-thirds of the payment amount provided in fiscal year 2010.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, any qualifying municipality, as defined in section 1 of P.L.1978, c.14 (C.52:27D-178) for the previous fiscal year, shall continue to be a qualifying municipality thereunder during the current fiscal year.

Notwithstanding the provisions of any law or regulation to the contrary, whenever funds appropriated as State Aid and payable to any municipality, which municipality requests and receives the approval of the Local Finance Board, such funds may be pledged as a guarantee for payment of principal and interest on any bond anticipation notes issued pursuant to section 11 of P.L.2003, c.15 (C.40A:2-8.1) and any tax anticipation notes issued pursuant to N.J.S.40A:4-64 by such municipality. Such funds, if so pledged, shall be made available by the State Treasurer upon receipt of a written notification by the Director of the Division of Local Government Services that the municipality does not have sufficient funds available for prompt payment of principal and interest on such notes, and shall be paid by the State Treasurer directly to the holders of such notes at such time and in such amounts as specified by the director, notwithstanding that payment of such funds does not coincide with any date for payment otherwise fixed by law.

The State Treasurer, in consultation with the Commissioner of Community Affairs, is empowered to direct the Director of the Division of Budget and Accounting to transfer appropriations from any State department to any other State department as may be necessary to provide a loan for a term not to exceed 180 days to a municipality faced with a fiscal crisis, including but not limited to a potential default on tax anticipation notes. Extension of the term of the loan shall be conditioned on the municipality being an “eligible municipality” pursuant to P.L.1987, c.75 (C.52:27D-118.24 et seq.).

Notwithstanding the provisions of N.J.S.40A:4-39 or any other law or regulation to the contrary, a county that assumes responsibility for the provision of local police services in one or more municipalities utilizing a new or expanded county police force may display the anticipated revenues and appropriations associated with such county police force in its annual budget by annexing to that budget a statement describing the sources and amounts of anticipated dedicated revenues and appropriating those dedicated amounts for the purposes of the county police force.
