(This amendment adds $1.0 million for an additional 15 staff at community based brain injury programs to address existing case management waiting lists, enhance virtual programming, expand partnerships, and development responses to the high-intensity needs of Virginians with brain injury, especially those related to COVID-19 and the opioid epidemic. Through a Department for the Aging and Rehabilitative Services appropriation and existing contract processes, funding would allow nine existing community based brain injury programs to hire new staff to enhance and/or expand services of services areas.)
