"KK.  Out of this appropriation, $6,550,000 is provided from the Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Trust Fund as follows: (i) $4,500,000 for the development of behavior/medical intense programs; (ii) $1,250,000 to subsidize capital costs associated with rental units; (iii) $500,000 for a House Call Program in Northern Virginia; and (iv) $300,000 for individual crisis events."


(This amendment eliminates $2.0 million in nongeneral fund appropriation the second year from the Behavioral Health Trust Fund that was provided in the introduced budget for issuing a request for proposals to develop providers in Virginia for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities with significant behavioral and mental health support needs requiring out-of-state congregate care. In addition, language is added to specify the purpose of the remaining $6.5 million in appropriation. The introduced budget appropriated a total of $8.5 million from the trust fund.)
