(This amendment provides funds from the federal TANF grant on welfare reform for a continuum of housing services to low-income families. Services would be targeted to homeless families attempting to regain independence. Services would include: assistance for emergency and transitional shelter; supportive services such as life skills, education, and job training; care and coordination to meet the special needs of homeless children while parents prepare and look for work; and rental assistance. The amendment also strikes language in the budget that would limit funding for child coordinators. Also, a portion of the funding may be used to support one additional position in the Department of Housing and Community Development for developing and overseeing these special local programs.)
