(This amendment provides $8.4 million the second year from the general fund for children’s behavioral health services and revises language to encourage flexible uses of funds to build service capacity focused on specialized needs of children and youth. This funding has not been increased since FY 2017 or adjusted for inflation, and as such the need exceeds current funding levels. These funds will be used to create new or expand existing community-based services for children.)
