(This amendment provides $750,000 from the general fund each year for the Long Term Employment Support Services (LTESS) program to support individuals with disabilities in competitive employment. LTESS provides a full array of employment support services to help individuals with significant disabilities maintain employment. LTESS funds have not been substantially increased for more than eight years. Funding will assist the Commonwealth in meeting the goals of its "Employment First" policy.)
