(This amendment adds $350,000 from the general fund and $200,000 from nongeneral funds from the federal TANF block grant the second year to restore funding for Healthy Families Virginia. Since 2010, state funding for the program has been reduced from $5.4 million to $3.2 million. Five programs have closed and eight programs have merged due to budget reductions. Healthy Families Virginia is the largest evidence-based, early childhood, home-visiting delivery model as defined by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. This public-private partnership contracts with the Department of Social Services to deliver preventive services for at-risk families for children prenatally to age five.)
