Solano County receives $6 million to help those in the criminal justice system (2017)

Solano County Health and Social Services is the recipient of $6 million to provide mental health, substance use disorder treatment and diversion programs for individuals in the criminal justice system.

The funds will be distributed during a three-year period.

Tuesday, the Solano County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the acceptance of the grant funding and the anticipated expenses during the first year.

In a letter issued by the Board of State and Community Corrections explained that grant awards are from a voter initiative that reduces from felonies to misdemeanors certain low-level crimes and directs state savings to rehabilitative programs.
