(This amendment provides general funds the second year for rental assistance to low-income families. Rental assistance would be targeted to homeless families attempting to regain independence. Funding for these services would be recognized as part of the Commonwealth's maintenance of effort spending under the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program. A companion amendment in Item 381 reduces general fund spending in welfare benefits to reflect this maintenance of effort spending and replaces those funds with excess federal TANF funds.)
