COMMUNITY SERVICES INFRASTRUCTURE GRANT PROGRAM
Senate Bill 843, Section 52 (2016) is intended to expand community alternatives to jail and prison through establishing a one-time competitive grant program: The Community Services Infrastructure (“CSI”) Grant Program. The program seeks to expand access to jail and prison diversion programs and services for those with mental health illness, substance use disorders, or who have suffered from trauma. The 2017-18 budget appropriated approximately $65,813,000 in grant funding for facility acquisition, renovation, equipment acquisition, and applicable startup or expansion costs for facilities that provide mental health services, substance use treatment, and/or trauma recovery services.
