(This amendment provides funding to eliminate the local match for the auxiliary grant, assuming the increase to $1,048 each month included in the Governor's budget is provided. The auxiliary grant, the primary source of non-federal funding to pay for assisted living for low-income Virginians, is funded with 80 percent state and 20 local funds. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care that found the local match of 20 percent is burdensome for localities in which a number of assisted living facilities have located near state psychiatric hospitals.)
