"Q.  Out of this appropriation, $1,500,000 the second year from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families  (TANF) block grant shall be provided to the Virginia Alliance for Boys & Girls Clubs to deliver services to TANF-eligible populations at more than 100 club sites across Virginia.  These funds shall be matched on a one-to-one basis by the Virginia Alliance."

(This amendment provides $1.5 million from the federal TANF block grant to be matched dollar for dollar by the Alliance for Boys and Girls Clubs for the prevention of truancy and drop-outs, targeted after-school services to foster children and homeless children, and improvements in academic achievement of at-risk children.)
