(This amendment provides funding of $850,000 each year from the general fund to provide each Center for Independent Living with $50,000 each to add newly required transition services. Transition services are required to (i) facilitate the transition of people with significant disabilities from nursing homes and other institutions to home and community-based residences with supports and services, (ii) provide assistance to people with significant disabilities who are at risk of institutional placements so they may remain in the community, and (iii) facilitate the transition of youth with significant disabilities who are eligible for individualized education programs in the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and who have completed their secondary education or otherwise left school to post-secondary life.)
