(This amendment provides $500,000 GF each year for services provided through community action agencies to promote self-sufficiency. The introduced budget eliminated $500,000 NGF each year from the federal TANF block grant for community action agencies. Thirty-two community action agencies (CAA) in the Commonwealth provide services to low-income families and communities. State funding for CAAs has fallen from $6.4 million in FY 2009 to $500,000 in FY 2012.)
