(This amendment provides $57,632 from the general fund each year for base funding for centers for independent living (CILs), which are currently receiving less than the minimum recommended funding to adequately provide independent living services. Currently four centers, disAbility Resource Center in Fredericksburg, Eastern Shore Center for Independent Living, Independence Empowerment Center in Manassas and Valley Associates for Independent Living in Harrisonburg, need increases to raise their base funding to the minimum recommended funding level of $250,000. CILs provide peer monitoring, independent living skills training, information and referral services, and advocacy.)
