(This amendment provides $2.0 million each year from the federal Temporary Assistance to Needy Families block grant in additional support for Community Action Agencies. This additional funding will assist the agencies in meeting the needs of low-income individuals and families and allow them to use Community Services Block Grant funding to complete efforts to comply with new federal organizational standards. These standards include critical financial and administrative requirements related to modernizing the agencies to provider higher quality programs and services to low-income individuals.)
