(This amendment provides $500,000 the second year from the general fund to the Northern Virginia Family Services (NVFS) to ensure continuation of available housing units for homeless women and children in the BEST transitional housing program. There is an acute shortage of affordable housing in Prince William area for single women with children. Currently, NVFS has 8 houses that provide 14 families with shelter. Six of the houses are over 35 years old, have mortgages and are in need of repair. NVFS will use $300,000 as a capital expense and $200,000 for major rehabilitation to the houses.)
