(This amendment restores $800,000 from federal TANF funds the second year to the Comprehensive Health Investment Project (CHIP) of Virginia. General fund support for CHIP was reduced by $843,612 in Chapter 874 of the 2010 Virginia Acts of Assembly. CHIP of Virginia is a statewide network of local public/private partnerships which provide registered nurses and community outreach workers to visit at-risk families to provide access to a medical home, health supervision and family support for children and pregnant women.)
