(This amendment restores $1.0 million in fiscal year 2017 from the general fund reduced in the Governor's FY 2017 Savings Plan for the Care Coordination for the Elderly Virginians Program. In fiscal year 2018, this amendment would add an additional $490,000 from the general fund to support the program. This program provides care coordination services for older Virginians throughout the Commonwealth. The fiscal year 2017 funding will expand the program back to fiscal year 2016 levels and the fiscal year 2018 funding will expand the program. Care coordination is the service that puts together the necessary and most appropriate array of services and supports to ensure that is what occurs individual by individual. 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.)
