Page 269, after line 48, insert:
"N.  The Commissioner of the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall allocate no less than $5.8 million during the 2014-16 biennium from the Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Trust Fund
to finance the continued development of a broad array of community-based services including but not limited to Intellectual Disability Home and Community Based Waiver services or appropriate community housing, for the purpose of transitioning individuals with intellectual disability from state training centers to community-based care."

(This amendment requires the department to allocate no less than $5.8 million during the biennium from the net proceeds of the sale of land at Southside Virginia Training Center and Southeastern Virginia Training that will be deposited to the DBHDS Trust Fund. Funding shall be used to ensure that sufficient capacity exists to transition individuals with intellectual disabilities from the state's ID training centers into the community. This additional allocation raises the amount of funding made available to provide behavioral and medical supports, durable medical equipment, and other services to $11.8 million to transition individuals out of training centers into the community.)
