(This amendment adds $405,500 from the general fund and reduces $405,500 from federal Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) block grant funds the second year to partially reverse action in the introduced budget to supplant general fund for Child Advocacy Centers (CACs) with TANF funds. This general fund restoration of $405,500 will allow the CACs to continue to match federal Victim of Crime Act (VOCA) funds. In addition, $49,250 of the general fund amount will be used for administrative support for the statewide organization. The TANF funds cannot be used as match for the VOCA grants or for administrative costs of the statewide organization.)
