(This amendment provides $10.5 million from the general fund and an equal amount of federal funds the second year for anticipated enrollment increases resulting from an increase to the auxiliary grant payment. Auxiliary grant recipients automatically qualify for Medicaid; hence, raising the monthly grant amount results in additional enrollment. A separate amendment to Item 359 increases the maximum auxiliary grant payment for approved assisted living facilities from $944 to $1,250 per month and by about 50 percent to $1,400 per month for approved assisted living facilities serving individuals with mental disabilities pursuant to Senate Bill 1000.)
