(The amendment provides $4.4 million from the general fund each year to fund specialized community based case management services to 1,500 people with moderate to severe brain injuries across the Commonwealth, including those in unserved and underserved areas. According to estimates from the Brain Injury Association of Virginia, there are nearly 800 individuals with moderate to sever brain injury in the Southern, Piedmont, Northwest, Middle Peninsula, and Northern Neck who lack access to state funded core safety net services. These funds would be used to develop specialized brain injury case management funds in those areas, and provide additional funds to existing programs to address waitlists.)
