(This amendment provides $25,000 from the general fund the first year to continue Missions of Mercy (MOM) projects in four areas of the state. MOM is a six-year, nationally recognized dental outreach program which has provided over $5.7 million in free dental care in underserved areas of Virginia. Over 14,000 patients have been seen and MOM expects to see 4,500 patients in 2006 and provide over $2 million in free dental care to those in need. Each dollar received translates into $20 in free dental care. This appropriation will augment the volunteer, contribution-based budget of MOM.)
