(This amendment eliminates funding and language for new initiatives to fund one intensive community residential treatment home, one transitional group home and three post-booking pilot programs. Funding of $1.4 million the first year and $2.2 million the second year from the general fund is reprogrammed to build on existing efforts to provide permanent supportive housing. Language directs that the funding be prioritized for individuals who are ready for discharge from state mental health hospitals or at risk of institutionalization. Permanent supportive housing provides rental assistance and in-home clinical services and support staff to assist individuals with mental illness in maintaining stability in the community. This funding will provide permanent supportive housing to 100 additional individuals in fiscal year 2017 and 157 individuals in fiscal year 2018.
