"D.  Out of this appropriation shall be provided $10,000,000 the first year from the federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant to local departments of social services to develop a grant program for use in the provision of services to enable a family to remain intact while moving to self-sufficiency.  The grant program shall be based on criteria that will assure state-wideness in the grant approval.  The process shall be responsive to applications for programs and activities that are (1) collaborative in working to develop supports to permit families to avoid entrance into the TANF program, and (2) assist in developing intervention that permit a community to work with youth and families to encourage attendance in school, learning skills, and other child welfare activities."

(This amendment provides funds from the federal TANF grant for a program designed to assist families before they require welfare and to assist others in transitioning off welfare.)
