(This amendment provides funding for respite care incentive grants. The grants will provide seed money of up to $100,000 to local communities for the development or expansion of adult day care services or other services that provide respite to families. Grants support Virginia families by reducing or delaying premature institutionalization of frail elderly family members. Grants will target rural and urban areas to ensure families have access to respite services in all regions of the Commonwealth. Community respite care organizations that are eligible to receive incentive grants may be a local subdivision of the Commonwealth, a combination of political subdivisions, a separate public agency, or a private nonprofit agency exempt under § 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.)
