(This amendment restores $490,000 in fiscal year 2018 from the general fund that was reduced in the introduced budget for the Care Coordination for the Elderly Virginians Program. This program provides care coordination services for older Virginians throughout the Commonwealth. Care coordination puts together the necessary and most appropriate array of services and supports to help ensure that elderly individuals remain in the community. Language is added to clarify that in fiscal year 2018, the number of Area Agencies on Aging authorized to use the funding for the program shall increase from 18 to 25.)
