“R.  Out of this appropriation, $1,000,000 from the general fund the second year shall be used to establish two demonstration projects using evidence-based “systems of care” models for children and adolescents with behavioral health needs.  The Commissioner may allocate up to $50,000 of this appropriation for an evaluation of the pilot projects.”

(This amendment adds $1.0 million from the general fund in the second year to implement nationally tested and evidence-based models of effective community treatment through two demonstration projects that will serve children with serious emotional disturbances and other related conditions. Each pilot project will serve approximately 150 to 200 children, whose needs are currently unmet by existing programs.)
