(This amendment provides $312,458 from the general fund and $296,798 from nongeneral funds and five positions the first year and $308,536 from nongeneral funds and five positions the second year to support the staff time of local departments of social services (LDSS) in maintaining state-funded kinship guardianship assistance program cases in accordance with § 63.2-1306, Code of Virginia. This request includes the staffing costs over time as these efforts cannot fall under one of existing LDSS staff budget streams, as no federal money can be used to support this program. Additionally, the funds will develop the internal state infrastructure necessary to support LDSS in kinship placements to increase eligibility for either the Kinship Guardianship Assistance Program or the State-Funded Kinship Subsidy program. These five regional kinship consultants would also assist with kinship across the continuum, including federal programs and some costs for these positions would be allocated to federal funding.)
