(This amendment adds $1.0 million from the general fund the second year 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.)
