"C.  Out of this appropriation, $50,000 the second year is provided to the Office of Children's Services for training and technical assistance activities in overseeing the Children's Services Act.  OCS is authorized to use a portion of these funds to hire a facilitator to assist with the workgroup created pursuant to Senate Bill 1313."


(This amendment reduces $50,000 the second year from the general fund that was provided in the introduced budget for administration of a rate setting process for special education private day programs. Language modifies the effective date for rate setting to a future date to be determined by the 2022 General Assembly pending the results of the final rate setting study. Out of the $100,000 general fund provided in the introduced budget, $50,000 remains in the Office of Children's Services to be used for training and technical assistance related to the Children's Services Act (CSA) program. The agency is allowed to use a portion of this funding for a facilitator for the stakeholder workgroup pursuant to Senate Bill 1313, that would determine how to move special education private day funding from CSA to the Department of Education.)
