The current auxilisry grant of $38.00 per day does not support the program. Facilities with a large percentage of auxiliary grant are alreaddy struggling as a result of the low rate .A $25,000 additional annual expense is not affordable to these homes.BUT I GUESS IT DOESN'T MATTER,BRING IT ON RICHMOND,YOUR REGULATIONS INCREASE AND INSINCERETY OF AN AUXILIARY GRANT INCREASE IS FORCING ME OUT OF BUSINESS SLOWLY BUT SURELY.HEAVEN HELP US ALL.
