Program Description

Senate Bill 843 (2016), Section 52 established a competitive grant program to disburse funds for the purpose of creating and expanding community alternatives to incarceration. The CSI Grant Program intends to expand access to jail and prison diversion programs and services; create or expand mental health treatment facilities, substance use disorder treatment facilities, and trauma-centered service facilities in local communities; and reduce the need of mental health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, and trauma-centered services in jails and prisons. The 2017-2018 budget bill appropriated $65,813,000 to fund capital projects under the CSI Grant Program.

All grant funding was awarded over two funding rounds for 16 projects in 10 counties. The following counties have received CSI grant awards: Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Nevada, Riverside, Sacramento, San Joaquin, San Luis Obispo, Solano, Sonoma, and Yolo.

This program is no longer accepting applications. No future allocations or funding rounds are scheduled.
