(This amendment adds $700,000 GF and $300,000 NGF 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 from before birth to age five.)
