(This amendment increases from $5,400 to $5,700 the first year and the second year the basis for calculating the state's share of the funding for the Virginia Preschool Initiative for at-risk four-year-olds unserved by Head Start programs. The per pupil amount has not been updated since the program began in fiscal year 1996. In addition, this amendment authorizes the Department of Education to provide one-time start-up or expansion grants out of any unobligated balances in the program based on non-participation.)
