(This amendment provides $2.1 million the first year and $2.3 million the second year from the general fund to meet the increase in referrals for Part C Early Intervention Services for infants and toddlers with disabilities ages birth to three years. In fiscal year 2013, 15,523 children and their families received Part C services, which was a 7.5 percent increase over the previous year. This funding prevents wait lists and allows local lead agencies to provide these needed services, thereby satisfying federal compliance standards for this entitlement program. These services, provided at a critically important time in a child’s life, help to reduce school-based services and health costs later in life.)
