(a) In addition to administering grants for adult day care programs and family respite care services for older Alaskans under AS 47.65.010 - 47.65.050, the commission may make grants under this section from funds otherwise available to it for adult day care programs and family respite care services for frail older persons and other similarly disabled adults.
