Page 298, after line 27, insert:

"M. Federal funds made available to the Commonwealth of Virginia for the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) program shall not be used to supplant non-federal funds for existing services and activities that promote a purpose of TANF. Stat or local funds expended for such a purpose shall be maintained at least at the level of such expenditures for fiscal year 2016."


(This amendment adds language prohibiting the use of federal TANF block grant funds to supplant non-federal funding for existing services and activities that meet the goals of TANF and are allowable uses of TANF dollars. State or local spending on these services must be maintained at levels funded in fiscal year 2016.)
