(This amendment adds $1.3 million from the general fund in the second year for transportation services provided through the local Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs). This funding will provide $50,000 per local AAA to offset increases in fuel costs over the past two years. Fuel cost increases have reduced the number of trips that local agencies provide at a time when demand for this service is increasing. Increases in fuel costs have also reduced the participation of volunteers who augment these transportation services in many parts of the Commonwealth.)
