(This amendment restores $727,628 the second year from the general fund to the Comprehensive Health Improvement Program (CHIP). Restoration of funding will allow CHIP to continue providing services to low-income, pregnant women and young children. The program has demonstrated improved birth outcomes, child health, school readiness, and parental work capacity. 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.)
