(This amendment adds funds to provide a one-time grant of $1,250,000 in the first year to each of the 25 local area agencies on aging to purchase vans or buses designed to accomodate wheelchairs. For those agencies that already have a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, funding would allow them to replace, repair and/or enhance the vehicle transportation services for elderly citizens to help maintain them in the community.)
