(This amendment provides $14.5 million the second year from the general fund for a five percent salary increase for direct care staff for Community Services Boards (CSBs) in FY 2024, with state covering approximately 65 percent of cost. CSBs indicate compensation is a key driver in recruitment/retention challenges and a top reason staff are planning to leave their jobs. Alleviating staffing shortages could reduce waiting lists and expedite access to services.)
