Item 346 #1c

Health And Human Resources
Social Services, Department of

Page 392, line 8, after ".", insert:
"For those jurisdictions that, when applying such criteria, achieve high priority ranking for increased state reimbursement, yet initiate local funding actions to address critical space needs or to consolidate human services, they shall nevertheless retain their ranking on the prioritized list of projects for increased state reimbursement for renovating existing space, relocating or constructing new space."

(This language amendment assures that localities that proceed with renovations or consolidations at local Departments of Social Services preserve their ranking on DSS' priority ranking of local projects if they are addressing critical renovations, acquiring new space, or consolidating local services. The Department of Social Services ranks building or renovation projects at local offices. Due to a lack of funding, some localities are proceeding with capital projects and losing their priority status as a result. This amendment addresses that issue.)
