"O.  The Board of Social Services shall combine Groups I and II for the purposes of Temporary Assistance to Needy Families cash benefits and use the Group II rates for the new group."


(This amendment provides $2.5 million from the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) block grant and $90,000 general fund the second year to reorganize the three locality groupings for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) cash assistance into only two. Groups I and II would be combined and the rates in Group II would apply to everyone in the group, resulting in an increase in TANF cash assistance payments. The general fund is a result of the TANF Unemployed Parent program, which is a state supported program.)
