(This amendment provides adds funding the second year and language to expand pilot projects in assisted living facilities (formerly adult care residences) to provide intensive support and treatment for mentally ill, mentally retarded and substance abusing individuals residing in those facilities. Currently 10 localities, with high concentrations of assisted living facilities that provide care to Auxiliary Grant recipients, have pilot projects. This funding would allow other localities to participate and increase access to services in the existing pilot localities.)
