"Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Cultural and Artistic Affairs, $45,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes."

(This amendment provides $45,000 from the general fund in the second year to the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes for the purchase of a vehicle with wheelchair lift capabilities. The organization supports two residences for adults with disabilities in Reston, Virginia. Two vans currently owned by the organization are used more than 230 hours each month for transportation to medical appointments, shopping, and recreational or family visits. Due to their extensive use, these vehicles now require repairs much more frequently. An additional van would reduce maintenance costs and provide for additional transportation services to the residents.)
