(This amendment adds $500,000 from the general fund the second year Long-Term Employment Support Services (LTESS) for people with disabilities. LTESS provides a full array of employment support services to meet the needs of individuals with significant disabilities to maintain employment. This funding addresses the program's projected shortage of available funding to meet the needs of an additional 3,300 individuals placed in supported employment services in fiscal year 2019 of which an estimated 1,321 will need supported employment services to maintain employment.)
