"P.  Out of this appropriation, $900,000 each year of the biennium from the general fund shall be used to provide substance abuse services through the community service boards."

(This amendment restores $900,000 from the general fund each year to the community services boards to provide substance abuse services. This funding, along with a companion amendment in Item 325, will help the Commonwealth meets its current maintenance of effort (MOE) requirement for the federal Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) block grant. The Governor's introduced budget created a $2.0 million deficit in the state's MOE in FY 2003, which would likely result in a dollar for dollar reduction in Virginia's SAPT block grant allocation in FY 2004. Restoration of these funds for substance abuse services will minimize the affect of the federal reduction in FY 2004 and restore the full SAPT allocation in FY 2005.)
