Page 288, line 24, after "diagnoses.", insert:

"This appropriation shall be used to build additional capacity necessary to provide adequate community-based services in Northern Virginia for Virginia residents who currently are not able to access needed services or residential supports."


(This amendment clarifies existing language which sets out the use of funding appropriated from the Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Trust Fund to develop provider capacity to serve residents with medically complex support needs or who have multiple diagnoses. Language specifies that the funding will be used to develop capacity in Northern Virginia for Virginia residents.)
