Concerning implementation of the community substance use and mental health services grant program, and, in connection therewith, reducing an appropriation.
Session:
2020 Regular Session
Subjects:

Local Government
Bill Summary

Existing law requires the department of local affairs (department) to award grants to counties pursuant to the community substance use and mental health services grant program (grant program) and requires the general assembly, beginning in fiscal year 2020-21, to appropriate money for the grant program from the estimated savings from House Bill 19-1263, concerning changing the penalty for certain violations pursuant to the "Uniform Controlled Substances Act of 2013".

The act makes the department's requirement to issue grants subject to available appropriations, removes the requirement to appropriate money for the grant program, and states the general assembly's intent to fund the grant program with money generated from the estimated savings from House Bill 19-1263.

An appropriation to the department for program costs related to field services is decreased by $66,208, and an appropriation to the department for community substance use and mental health services grants is decreased by $1,800,000.
