(This amendment provides $5.0 million the second year from the general fund for individuals who are not eligible for MR waiver services but who are in need of case management, residential, or day support services due to the death or illness of the primary caregiver or who require case management, day support, or other services upon graduation from special education. Funding is needed to provide services for adults with mental retardation and graduates, assisting them to remain in their communities and make the most of their educational achievements. It is estimated that 20,000 consumers with MR have needs for day support, residential and other services.)
