(This amendment reduces $3.0 million from nongeneral funds the second year from the Temporary Assistance for Needy Family (TANF) block grant for a pilot program to increase education and access to birth control implants. The language limits the pilot program to expanding access to etonogestrel birth control implants and not to any other type of Long Acting Reversible Contraception.)
