(This amendment captures $2.7 million in general fund savings from the Title IV-E Foster Care program due to the extension of the federal Public Health Emergency (PHE). The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (P.L. 116-127) provides a 6.2 percentage point increase in the state's federal match rate for Medicaid in each quarter under a PHE. The Title IV-E program uses the same match rate. The federal Secretary of Health and Human Services announced in January another 90-day extension and this amendment reflects the savings to the Commonwealth for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022.)
