Page 277, after line 27, insert:
“2.  Of this amount, $1,568,750 from the general fund each year shall be used to provide a continuum of brain injury services to individuals in unserved or underserved regions of the Commonwealth.  Up to $250,000 each year shall be awarded to successful applicants.  Organizations currently receiving more than $250,000 each year are ineligible for additional assistance under this section.  To be determined eligible for a grant under this section, organizations shall submit plans to match 50 percent of general fund support with non-state funding each year.
3.  Beginning November 1, 2005, grant recipients shall submit annual reports to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees documenting the number of individuals served, services provided, and success in attracting non-state resources.”

(This amendment provides up to $1.6 million each year from the general fund to ensure that access to brain injury services is provided statewide. Eligible applicants must submit plans to match at least one-half of estimated spending with non-state resources. Recipients are required to submit annual reports beginning November 1, 2005. This amendment also adjusts budget language that makes a general fund appropriation for brain injury services in the first year to accurately reflect the current level of funding. This latter change is technical.)
