"H.  Out of this appropriation, $300,000 from the general fund the second year shall be provided to the Virginia Association of Free Clinics for distribution to free clinics who want to develop, coordinate or deliver dental services in the Commonwealth."

(This amendment provides funding to the Virginia Association of Free Clinics to develop, coordinate, and deliver dental services through Virginia's free clinics. Currently, eighteen free clinics in Virginia have their own in-house dental operations. Other free clinics use a dental referral network in which patients are screened for eligibility and referred to a private dentist's office. Typically, free clinic dental programs focus on treatment of acute dental conditions, although some operations provide dental restorations.)
