Page 386, line 25, strike "$45,784,860" and insert "$45,884,860".
Page 387, line 26, after "fund", insert:
"and $100,000 from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grant".
Page 387, line 29, after "Counties", insert:
"In the event that additional federal Community Services Block Grant funds become available to community action agencies pursuant to "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" or other similar act adopted by the 111th Congress, the distribution formula shall include all localities currently served by community action agencies in the calculation of funding to each community action agency."

(This amendment restores $100,000 the second year from the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grant for the Tri-County Community Action Agency to ensure that adequate resources are available in Charlotte and Mecklenburg counties to provide appropriate services. The introduced budget reduced $100,000 from the general fund in the second year for this agency. Funding was not provided to these jurisdictions through the statewide distribution of funding for community action agencies despite their addition to the Tri-County organization. Language is also added to include funding for these jurisdictions through the distribution formula if additional funding becomes available through Congressional actions.)
