(This amendment funds the fiscal impact of Senate Bill 187, which eliminates the two-year time limit on receiving Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) benefits consecutively. Federal law limits TANF benefits to a maximum of five-years over a lifetime. Current Virginia law further requires a maximum allowed two-years of consecutive benefits and then a period of time before families can access benefits again.)
