  2.  The coordinating board shall determine eligibility for renewed assistance on the basis of annual applications and annual evaluations of expected family contribution.  In awarding renewal grants, the coordinating board may increase or decrease the amount of financial assistance to an applicant if such action is warranted by a change in the financial condition of the applicant, the applicant's spouse or parents, or the availability of funds for that year.  As a condition to consideration for initial or renewed assistance, the coordinating board may require the applicant, the applicant's spouse and parents to execute forms of consent authorizing the director of revenue of Missouri to compare financial information submitted by the applicant with the Missouri individual income tax returns of the applicant, the applicant's spouse and parents for the taxable year immediately preceding the year for which application is made, and to report any discrepancies to the coordinating board.

  3.  There is hereby created in the state treasury the "Access Missouri Financial Assistance Fund".  The state treasurer shall be custodian of the fund and may approve disbursements from the fund in accordance with sections 30.170 and 30.180.  Upon appropriation, money in the fund shall be used solely to provide financial assistance to qualified applicants as provided by sections 173.1101 to 173.1107. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary, any moneys remaining in the fund at the end of the biennium shall not revert to the credit of the general revenue fund.  The state treasurer shall invest moneys in the fund in the same manner as other funds are invested.  Any interest and moneys earned on such investments shall be credited to the fund.
