(This amendment adds $5.9 million from the general fund the second year for vocational rehabilitation services that develop jobs and place Virginians with disabilities into jobs. More than 2,000 individuals with disabilities are currently eligible but are waiting for job development and job placement services on an Order of Selection waiting list at the Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services because of lack of funds. The added funds may be matched with federal vocational rehabilitation funds if there are balances available to be reallocated to states. These funds provide a 67 percent federal match.)
