"5.  Out of amounts unspent in V.1. of this item in fiscal year 2013, up to $715,000 from the general fund shall be provided as start-up funding for individuals being discharged from state training centers for the costs of retrofitting homes and facilities to make them accessible and staff, the purchase of wheelchair accessible vehicles, staff recruitment and training, added staffing costs associated with helping the individual transition from state training centers to the community such as facility visits, training by facility staff, team meetings, and other purchases not covered by Medicaid."
