"Q.  Out of this appropriation, $1,000,000 the first year and $1,500,000 the second year from the general fund shall be provided to local Area Agencies on Aging (AAA).  General funds shall be provided to AAAs that are subject to the loss of funds due to the decennial update of the federal formula for Area Agencies on Aging.  Additional funding shall be used to address the growing number of elderly citizens in need of health, nutritional and other community-based services."

(This amendment provides $1.0 million the first year and $1.5 million the second year from the general fund to address the needs of elderly Virginians who receive services through Area Agencies on Aging. This amendment offsets the loss of federal resources due to decennial changes in federal funding. As a result of this amendment, all AAAs will receive additional funding from state or federal resources.)
