BSCC Seeks Committee Members for Innovative Diversion Program
July 14, 2016
The Board of State and Community Corrections is seeking members for an executive steering committee for its new Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) competitive grant program. The Governor’s 2016-2017 budget allocates $15 million to the LEAD program. Grants will be allocated to three jurisdictions for three-year pilot programs.
The purpose of the LEAD program is to improve public safety and reduce recidivism by increasing the availability and use of social service resources while reducing costs to law enforcement agencies and courts stemming from repeated incarceration.
This executive steering committee will develop the RFP for Board approval, rate proposals, and make award recommendations to the Board. Committee members will be appointed by the Board on a limited-term beginning in September 2016 and concluding in June 2017. The BSCC is accepting statements of interest through July 31, 2016.
