(This amendment provides $200,000 each year from the general fund to the Virginia Center on Aging (VCoA). VCoA administers the Geriatric Training and Education program, the Commonwealth's only workforce development and grant program targeting geriatric/gerontological individuals. Localities across Virginia identify their aging-related training needs for their employees and submit proposals to VCoA for needed funding. These proposals are reviewed by independent third party reviewers who recommend which proposals meet funding criteria (cost-effectiveness, etc.). For the past 8 years, over 40 percent of the screened and approved proposals for needed workforce training have not been funded because of insufficient funding.)
