(This amendment increases the nongeneral fund appropriation for the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLEnow) Program. This program allows individuals with disabilities to establish federally tax-advantaged accounts to fund qualified disability expenses including; education, housing, transportation, employment training and support, assistive technology and related services, health, prevention and wellness, financial management and administrative services, legal fees, expenses for oversight and monitoring, funeral and burial, and basic living expenses. This increase will help expand participation in the program by building awareness of the ABLEnow program among a wide cross section of disability communities.)
