(This amendment provides general fund support in the second year as seed money for the Statewide Independent Living Fund (fund) created by the 2006 General Assembly. The general fund monies will enable the Statewide Independent Living Council (Council) to attract additional resources to support and enhance initiatives under its state plan promoting indipendent living for Virginians with disabilities. The Council currently operates solely on federal monies, which cannot be used for activities to raise additional funds for the programs in the State Plan for Independent Living. The fund was created as a vehicle through which the Council could receive additional grants and contributions to support the programs under the state plan. However, in order for the Council to attract contributions of grants to the fund, it needs non-federal monies to seek and solicit those additional resources.)
