(This amendment adds $1.0 million from the general fund the second year to increase support for brain injury services. The funding would help address existing wait lists, expand community based brain injury core safety net services (case management, clubhouses/day programs, resources coordination) and provide funds for other critical long term supports and services (e.g., positive behavior support, telehealth, supported living, peer support programs) in unserved and underserved areas of the Commonwealth.)
