(This amendment reduces $5.4 million from the general fund the first year in the Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to reflect use of the funds from the Behavioral and Developmental Services Trust Fund to offset the costs of providing services to individuals pursuant to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Settlement Agreement. The introduced budget provides an additional $82.1 million in fiscal year 2015 and $103.9 million in fiscal year 2016 from the general fund to support the Commonwealth's commitment to provide necessary Medicaid waiver intellectual and developmental disability waiver slots, individual and family support services, crisis stabilization services, quality review, and other developmental disability services pursuant to the DOJ Settlement Agreement. The trust fund is estimated to receive $5.4 million in fiscal year 2015 from the sale of surplus state property located at Southeastern Virginia Training Center.)
