(This amendment provides $1.8 million each year from the general fund for Families Forward Virginia to conduct randomized controlled trials, which is required for the Children's Health Investment Program (CHIP) home-visiting programs to receive the designation of an evidence-based model. This will allow CHIP programs in the Commonwealth to diversify their funding sources and be eligible for more federal funding. It will also offer state agencies another evidence-based model, founded and managed in Virginia, to support their achievement of state goals for family self-sufficiency and maternal and child health.)
