(This amendment adds $237,500 to existing second year funding for Project Discovery for an annual funding level of $850,000 to provide support to existing Partner Agencies and assist long-planned but unfunded program expansions. Established in 1979, Project Discovery is a post-secondary college access program currently offered through 22 Virginia Partner Agencies. The program encourages students to stay in and graduate from high school and provides resources and tools for students and families to successfully make the transition to post-secondary education. Many participants are first-generation college students. Partner Agencies must match, dollar-for-dollar, program support.)
