"Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts                 $250,000                $0".

(This amendment provides $250,000 the first year from the general fund for the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, located in Vienna, Virginia. Funds are requested to enable delivery of proven education services by the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts to preschool children throughout Virginia, including those who are at-risk or disabled. The Institute works directly with teachers and students in their own preschool and kindergarten classrooms and in host community forums, helping children to meet Virginia SOL and building teacher, parent, and caregiver skills. Children score significantly higher on standardized tests measuring initiative, math, language and literary. Each host community demonstrates commitment by matching Virginia funding.)
