(This amendment provides $1.5 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funding in support of Virginia's 4-H Educational Centers. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and mandated closures, the 4-H Educational Centers experienced significant business disruption in 2020 and 2021 resulting in a $4 million revenue shortfall. This funding will match $1.4 million in corporate and private gifts and $900,000 from various local government COVID relief resources currently pledged to support operations of the centers.)
