(This amendment provides funding to increase the state share of the maximum monthly auxiliary grant (AG) rate to $1,061 by July 1, 2007. When combined with funding included in the Governor's introduced budget, the auxiliary grant will have increased by five percent from January 1, 2007 to July 1, 2007. This monthly auxiliary grant is the primary source of funding for assisted living for low-income Virginians. In June 2006, JLARC reported that Virginia’s auxiliary grant rate was “well below the market price”, paying for 33 to 59 percent of the average cost of assisted living facility care.)
