Realignment Implementation News
The Department of Finance (DOF) released allocation schedules to the State Controller for disbursing 2011 realignment funds. On September 16, the DOF submitted schedules for 2011-12 for the following accounts within the Health and Human Services Account:
- Adult Protective Services Subaccount
- Foster Care Assistance Subaccount
- Foster Care Administration Subaccount
- Child Welfare Services Subaccount
- Adoptions Subaccount
- Child Abuse Prevention Subaccount
- Adoption Assistance Program Subaccount
- Women and Children’s Residential Treatment Services Subaccount
- Drug Court Subaccount
- Nondrug Medi-Cal Substance Abuse Treatment Services Subaccount
- Drug Medi-Cal Subaccount
The schedules detail disbursements for every county for
September, October and November 2011. The allocations may be
refined as the year progresses. In particular, the Drug Medi-Cal
and the Adoptions Subaccount may be altered in subsequent
schedules as additional information becomes available. Updated
allocations will be due to the Controller by December 15,
Additionally, DOF released an allocation schedule for the CalWORKs MOE Subaccount on September 22. The allocation schedule details the amount each county will receive from the sales tax and VLF revenues that would have otherwise been deposited into the Local Revenue Fund for mental health services. An updated CalWORKs MOE Subaccount allocation schedule will be released in January 2012.
County health and human services departments should have received these allocation letters directly from the state. Copies of the letters, with county-by-county disbursements are posted on the CSAC website.
