(This amendment changes the percentage of the required local match for the Virginia Preschool Initiative that may come from in-kind services from no more than 25 percent to no more than 75 percent of the required local contribution. Currently, localities provide up to a dollar for dollar match, depending on their composite index of local ability to pay, to draw down Virginia Preschool Initiative funds, with some flexibility to count in-kind benefits, such as investments made in school buildings and capital projects. There is no impact on state dollars.)
