(This amendment funds the impact on the Department of Medical Assistance Services' budget from a companion amendment raising the auxiliary grant rate in the second year from $785 to $810 per month for recipients in Adult Care Residences. The increased rate will qualify more individuals for Medicaid eligibility and intensive assisted living supplements in adult care residences.)
