(This amendment provides $850,000 the second year from the general fund for assistive devices to improve the independence and quality of life of Virginians with disabilities and seniors. Funding will be used to provide reused assistive devices to improve independence, productive living and quality of life to Virginians with Disabilities. In FY 2008, 2,645 Virginians who were uninsured or whose insurance would not provide access to medical equipment needs received necessary reused assistive technology devices and durable medical equipment. These devices would normally be discarded or abandoned. State funding will continue support for the VATNet program that is currently supported with federal funding that is slated to end in October 2009.)
