(This amendment restores $450,000 NGF the first year from the federal TANF block grant and $450,000 GF the second year for the Comprehensive Health Improvement Program (CHIP). This amendment restores funding for CHIP of Virginia to serve 113 additional families. CHIP of Virginia is a statewide network of local public/private partnerships providing evidence-based services to low-income pregnant women and young children. While achieving significant cost-savings, the CHIP program has demonstrated improved outcomes related to healthy births and infant development, children’s health and school readiness, as well as work capacity and parenting skills.)
