(This amendment adds $30,000 each year from the general fund to the Rx Partnership for the state match for procuring bulk medications for more than 20 affiliated Free Clinics and 35 clinical delivery sites at Community Health Centers across Virginia. The Rx Partnership has leveraged its state funds to provide in excess of $33 in medications for every $1 provided. This funding will help the Rx Partnership to improve access to free medications for low-income Virginians.)
