(This amendment provides $250,000 GF to support the recommendations made by the Coalition of Asian Pacific Americans of Virginia in its 2004 Annual Report. Between 1990 and 2000, the Asian American population in Virginia increased by 95.0 percent to 304,559. The proposal addresses the primary needs that are unique to foreign-born Virginians: (1) access to opportunities to improve English proficiencies; (2) access to services and information in their native languages; and (3) access to affordable health care.)
