(This amendment provides funding for the provision of cash assistance through the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program to individuals who would be eligible for such assistance but for a conviction of a felony offense of possession of a controlled substance in violation of § 18.2-250, Code of Virginia. While federal TANF legislation bars assistance to such persons, the federal law does permit states to opt out of this provision. Thirty-four states have opted out of this provision and provide TANF to eligible recipients. Funding is contingent upon the passage of Senate Bill 576.)
