Summary
Proposition 47 is a voter-approved initiative that seeks to ensure that prison spending is focused on violent and serious offenses, that alternatives to prison for nonviolent, nonserious crime are maximized, and that preventive and support programs are offered that might reduce recidivism. The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) will administer this grant program aimed at supporting mental health treatment, substance abuse treatment, and diversion programs for people in the criminal justice system, with an emphasis on programs that reduce recidivism of people convicted of less serious crimes and those who have substance abuse and mental health problems. Projects may include mental health and substance abuse treatment, housing, and other community-based support services such as case management and job skills training.
