(This amendment provides $250,000 in start-up funding for one additional Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) program in Virginia. PACE provides an array of community-based services to elderly clients which often allows for institutional care to be delayed or avoided. Last October, six PACE programs were awarded start-up funding but at least two potential programs did not receive funding. Funding for one additional PACE program (to be located in Northern Virginia) was included in the Governor’s introduced budget. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
