(This amendment provides $300,000 GF the first year and $600,000 GF the second year to support a statewide initiative to provide free or reduced cost course content to students, including textbooks, through the Virtual Library of Virginia (VIVA). This builds upon a successful pilot in 2017 to develop, identify, and adopt into the curricula low-cost and free course materials, especially textbooks, for Virginia students, thereby decreasing the cost of education.)
