(This amendment provides $3.0 million per year in Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) funding for Community Action Agencies. Due to new federal requirements related to organizational standards for community action agencies, additional funding is needed for compliance. These standards include critical financial and administrative requirements related to modernizing the agencies to provider higher quality programs and services to low-income individuals.)
