(This amendment restores $100,000 to the general fund each year to Total Action Against Poverty (TAP), a Community Action Agency located in Roanoke, Virginia. The introduced budget reduces funding provided to Community Action Agencies through the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) block grant by 34 percent in fiscal year 2011 and eliminates it entirely in fiscal year 2012. In addition TAP is impacted by the elimination of TANF funding for Centers for Employment and Training included in the introduced budget.)
