September 15 – Growth Cap Webinar Hosted by the Department of State Hospitals (DSH)

September 14, 2023

Last Friday, the Department of State Hospitals (DSH) held a webinar on their growth cap and penalty program, but unfortunately due to errors, county participants were unable to join. As a result, DSH agreed to host another webinar this Friday, September 15th at from 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm.

It is critically important that counties join this Friday to learn more about the changes to the DSH’s Felony Incompetent to Stand Trial (IST) Growth Cap and Penalty program (see attached Department Letter 23-003). This is a prime opportunity for all counties (executives, directors, and front-line staff from all departments and agencies (county executive office, budget, behavioral health, sheriff, probation, public defender, district attorney, as well as other county stakeholders) to ask questions, discuss challenges, and share local concerns.

DSH plans to extensively test the Webex link prior to the meeting to ensure that the same issue does not occur.  Again, we encourage all counties to join, actively participate, and ask questions!  Please register using the link below:


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ryan Morimune at rmorminue@counties.org and Stanicia at sboatner@counties.org.
