Page 303, line 42, strike "$15,055,686" and insert "$16,055,686".
Page 309, after line 26, insert:
"U.  Out of this appropriation, $1,000,000 from the general fund the second year shall be provided to the Northern Virginia Regional Commission, in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Health, for grants to HIV treatment providers within Planning District 8.  The grants shall be used to expand service capacity to treat individuals with HIV."

(This amendment provides $1.0 million in the second year to the Northern Virginia Regional Commission to address the shrinking number of HIV treatment providers within the Northern Virginia region. While the number of persons living with HIV and in need of HIV-specific treatment services continues to grow, the number and service capacity of qualified providers in the Northern Virginia region continues to shrink. Funds would be distributed by the Commission, which is the current administrator of other federal HIV treatment funds, in collaborations with the Virginia Department of Health.)
