Page 347, line 17, after the period, insert:
"Of this appropriation, the Commissioner shall transfer up to $2,000,000 the second year to the Comprehensive Services Act (CSA) for At-Risk Youth program to serve children and adolescents who are mandated for mental health services in order to prevent their placement in foster care.  The Commissioner shall transfer such funds when the Director of the CSA program identifies children who require mental health services that satisfy the conditions set forth in the Code of Virginia§2.2-5211.  Funds transferred to CSA to serve children and adolescents who are mandated for mental health services shall assume the same local matching requirements as existing CSA pool fund allocations.  Of the $2,000,000 available for transfer to CSA, any unused funds available at the end of the fiscal year shall be distributed to Community Services Boards for children and adolescents who are not mandated for CSA, who are identified and assessed through the Family and Assessment Planning Teams and approved by the Community Policy and Management Teams of the localities."

(This amendment requires the Commissioner of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Substance Abuse Services to transfer up to $2.0 million GF the second year to the director of the CSA program for children who are mandated for services under CSA. Any funds transferred from the current $6.2 million appropriation for non-mandated mental health services for children and youth shall be matched with local dollars according to the current allocation CSA formula. Funding is contingent upon the passage of Senate Bill 1332.)
