"F.1.  Out of the amounts in this Item $100,000 the first year and $100,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided for a demonstration project to pay for a portion of the costs of assisted living care services for the residents of Culpepper Garden III, a HUD-subsidized assisted living facility for low-income elderly in Arlington, who have no assets and monthly incomes of $1,200 or less, and who require assistance with at least three activities of daily living.  The project is designed to demonstrate the costs and benefits to the Commonwealth of using state funds to partially subsidize the costs of assisted living for very low-income residents who reside in HUD-subsidized facilities.  The funds shall be used only to pay for part of the costs of providing personal care services to elderly Medicaid-eligible individuals who need assistance with three or more activities of daily living.
2.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that this project be funded in the amount of $100,000 per year for five years.
3.  The Joint Commission on Health Care is authorized to use the findings of this demonstration program in its consideration of the Commonwealth's policy of long-term care for the frail elderly."

(This amendment provides $200,000 to subsidize the assisted living expenses of some 16 residents in Culpepper Garden III, a HUD-subsidized housing facility for very low-income elderly in Arlington County.)
