"H.  Notwithstanding any provision of law, the state shall be responsible for payments under the Auxiliary Grant Program."

(This amendment provides almost $6.5 million from the general fund in the second year to eliminate the local share of monthly payments provided through the Auxiliary Grant Program, as contained in the introduced budget. The introduced budget increases the maximum monthly grant allowed under the program to $1,048. Under current law, 20 percent of the cost of the program must be shared by local government. Auxiliary Grant payments are made on behalf of eligible low-income, aged or disabled individuals for housing-related costs in assisted living facilities.)
