(This amendment provides funding to increase the state share of the maximum monthly auxiliary grant (AG) rate by 78 percent from $1,075 to $1,915 on July 1, 2008. A separate amendment to Item 306 provides for an increase in Medicaid enrollment as a result of this increase. The local share of funding ($17.4 million) is not reflected in this amendment. The auxiliary grant is the primary source of funding for assisted living for low-income Virginians.)
