(This amendment provides funding to address local department of social services space needs through additional lease costs for the 33 local facilities with the highest relative need as determined by the Commissioner of Social Services' Report of Local Department of Social Services Funding Requests for Renovating Existing Space, Relocating or Constructing New Space, November 1, 2006. The 2006 Appropriation Act required the Commissioner to complete an analysis of local requests for increased state reimbursement for renovating existing space, relocating, or constructing new space, and to develop a prioritized list of these requests. Over the past 10 years, there have been six instances where funding was provided to a specific locality to assist with lease costs to renovate, relocate or construct local office space through General Assembly budget amendments or other state budget means. The most recent statewide allocation of additional funds to local departments for rent was provided in by the General Assembly for FY 2000 in the amount of $1.8 million from the general fund.)
