(This amendment provides $1.0 million each year from the general fund to provide family supports for non-Medicaid waiver individuals and their families. This funding would support 25 families at each Community Services Board with a cap of $2,000 per family. This assistance should help reduce crisis situations and avoid unnecessary hospitalizations.)
