(This amendment restores $11.5 million the second year from the general fund to restore crisis services as part of STEP-VA. The funding includes $6.8 million for mobile crisis services and $4.7 million for crisis dispatch that will assist in implementation of Senate Bill 5038, that creates a mental health awareness response system. These funds were included in the budget passed in March, but subsequently unallotted in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic and eliminated in the introduced budget for the Special Session.)
