"F.1. Out of this appropriation shall be provided $1,415,000 in nongeneral funds in the first year and $1,415,000 in nongeneral funds in the second year from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant for child care training of TANF recipients or a TANF-eligible family member. Regional training shall be developed at Norfolk State University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, the Virginia Community College System, and private nonprofit agencies in cooperation with the Department of Social Services, local social services departments, and the Virginia League of Social Service Executives.
2. The Department of Social Services shall measure the effectiveness of these programs based on established outcome measures."

(This amendment transfers language in the introduced budget related to child care training for welfare participants from Item 402 to the correct Item 404. Language is amended to allow Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) recipients to participate in child care training, as well as TANF-eligible family members if they are eligible for (but not receiving) welfare benefits. Language is also amended to allow private, non-profit agencies to provide child care training, and an additional $50,000 each year from the federal TANF block grant is added. Currently, only institutions of higher education are designated in the introduced budget as the regional providers of training to participants in the Virginia Initiative for Employment Not Welfare program. Language is also added that requires the Department of Social Services to develop performance measures for the program.)
