(This amendment provides $50,000 from the general fund the first year for SeniorNavigator, a public-private partnership that provides a comprehensive health and aging information system for Virginia's senior population, their families and caregivers. First year funding will help cover the cost of technology upgrades needed to continue serving consumers and service providers. SeniorNavigator has experienced a 25 percent increase in listings in their database since 2008 and a 20 percent annual increase in website visits linking older Virginians with caregivers and services.)
