(This amendment provides $25,000 the first year from the general fund to Reading Enriches All Children (REACH), Inc. The requested funds would be used to support the literacy needs of homeless and at-risk children in the South Hampton Roads community. State funding would allow expansion of the outreach program to include children in all of South Hampton Roads' shelters and would also allow for additional partnerships with at-risk children in the community.)
