(This amendment adds language earmarking state funds for local domestic violence prevention programs. The introduced budget substituted federal TANF funds for the general fund appropriations in this program. The restored state funding ($250,000 each year) provided by a companion amendment in Item 388.10 would enable the program to continue using state funds for matching other federal funds, thereby ensuring no reductions in services. Also, the program would be authorized to retain the increase in federal TANF funds proposed in the introduced budget, resulting in a total increase in funding of $250,000 per year. The companion amendment in Item 388.10 restores the appropriations, which would have been distributed as "management savings" to this program.)
