"Free Clinic of the Twin Counties               250,000            0".

(This amendment provides $250,000 the first year from the general fund to the Free Clinic of the Twin Counties. The Clinic serves the City of Galax and Carroll and Grayson counties. The Clinic has an operating budget increase of about $120,000 and is in the process of trying to purchase dental equipment for a dental program at the cost of $175,000. The Clinic is very active in fund-raising and grant applications; however, due to an expansion and move, it needs a one-time in fusion of funds from the state to help offset these costs.)
