(This amendment restores funding to the Jewish Family Service of Tidewater for guardianship services for vulnerable, incapacitated individuals who cannot take care of themselves. The organization services about 600 incapacitated adults, only 67 of whom are funded through the Virginia Public Guardian and Conservator Program. The program serves 334 indigent clients without limited support. Funding for the organization was reduced by 50 percent in fiscal year 2012 and eliminated in fiscal year 2013.)
