(This amendment restores $410,000 from the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grant the second year to the Comprehensive Health Improvement Program (CHIP) of Virginia. Last year, the budget for CHIP of Virginia was reduced by $105,318 the first year and $832,956 second year. Partial restoration of funding will allow CHIP to continue providing evidence-based services to low-income, pregnant women, and young children in 27 localities. 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.)
