(This amendment provides $800,000 the second year from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) block grant to fund SB 838, a bill that directs the Department of Social Services to establish and administer a three-year TANF Scholarship Pilot Program for the purpose of providing access to postsecondary educational opportunities to students living in poverty. The program would provide prepaid scholarships to select community colleges in the amount of $2,000 per year, to be applied toward the costs of tuition and books, to 50 to 75 selected students who meet TANF eligibility requirements.)
