"H. The Department of Social Services shall contract with community employment service organizations for the provision of employment services to disabled Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) recipients, rather than using the Department of Rehabilitative Services as an intermediary."

(This amendment requires the Department of Social Services (DSS) to contract directly with community employment service organizations to provide employment services to TANF recipients. DSS uses an intermediary, the Department of Rehabilitative Services, to contract for these services. Currently, $837,500 in federal TANF funds in fiscal year 2003 and $711,875 in fiscal year 2004 are allocated for these services.)
