(This amendment adds $1.3 million from the general fund each year to fully fund anticipated demand for grants from the Caregivers Grant Program. Funding for the program would increase from $350,000 to $1.7 million each year and provide the maximum grant of $500 to approximately 3,250 individuals. This program provides up to $500 each year for caregivers who have income under $50,000 and who provide unreimbursed care for a person who is aged, infirm, or disabled.)
