Page 140, line 36, strike "$265,618,994" and insert "$265,718,994".
Page 143, after line 43, insert:
"K.  This appropriation includes $100,000 from the general fund in the second year to the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education for a Gang Prevention Project.  The purpose of the project is to assist localities in developing comprehensive violence prevention plans.  The funds shall be used to train community teams on violence prevention, conduct needs assessments and assist in program development, and may also be used to fund local community grants to private non-profit organizations providing gang prevention programming to at-risk youth and families.  The Curry School of Education shall coordinate its training, technical assistance, community education efforts and awarding of grants and required grant monitoring activities with the School of Education of Virginia Commonwealth University."

(This amendment is self-explanatory. A companion amendment in Item 187 for Virginia Commonwealth University establishes the same program at that institution. The two programs would coordinate their services.)
