Item 283 #4c

Health And Human Resources
Comprehensive Services for At-Risk Youth and Families

Page 209, line 25, after "base." insert:
"The Director of the Office of Comprehensive Services shall evaluate the impact of this policy change on
the care and treatment of children and youth, including appropriate outcomes data, and report findings to the Chairmen of the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by October 1, 2012."

(This language amendment requires the Office of Comprehensive Services to evaluate the impact of the changes to the state and local match rates for services provided through the Comprehensive Services Act on the treatment outcomes of children and youth served by the program. Beginning in fiscal year 2010, the local match rates were changed for residential treatment services and community-based services to assist localities in developing appropriate community-based services for the treatment of at-risk youth in lieu of higher-cost residential services.)
