(This amendment restores $2.0 million the second year from the general fund to Healthy Families Virginia. Funding for this program has been reduced by 41 percent in the second year of the biennium. The additional funding is needed to maintain the program at fiscal year 2010 levels. Without the funding 1,000 children will lose access to these services. Since 2010, three of the 38 Healthy Families sites across Virginia have closed due to funding cuts.)
