(This amendment reduces the appropriation for the Virginia Values Veterans employer grant program to $100,000 from the general fund each year. As identified in the "Annual Report on the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Employment Grant" published by the Department of Veterans Services on December 4, 2019, the Department has expended less than $100,000 for grants from the program in each of the fiscal years 2017, 2018, and 2019. Corresponding amendments to other items in House Bill 30 reflect (i) the provision of an additional position for the Women Veterans Program operated by the Department, and (ii) a tax credit to be provided to low-income veterans with service-related disabilities pursuant to House Bill 1619.)
