BSCC Grant Funding Available
December 1, 2022
Earlier in November, the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) approved the release of a Request for Proposals for the Mobile Probation Services Centers Grant Program, which makes $20 million available to counties to purchase vehicles, equipment, and technology to conduct outreach to probationers, particularly those who are unhoused and struggling to meet requirements. Proposals are due back to the BSCC on January 6, 2023, and the grant period will begin in May.
In other business the Board:
- Approved $4 million in annual federal Title II funding over three years to eight nonprofits and three government agencies to support delinquency prevention and improvements in the juvenile justice system.
- Authorized Board staff to recruit an executive steering committee for the $10 million Medication-Assisted Treatment Grant Program. The ESC will write the request for proposals. The MAT grant is designed to provide funding for the treatment of substance-use disorders and to pay for medications to help people break their addictions. The services can be delivered in county jails or in a community-based setting.
