(This amendment provides $21.3 million from the general fund each year for paid internships ($3.2 million), clinical supervision hours ($9.6 million), loan repayment ($4.3 million), and scholarships (4.3 million) to grow the Community Services Board workforce. The funding will act as a mechanism for recruitment and retention in the short term as well as to develop a pipeline for staff at all levels which will result in a robust and stable workforce in the public safety net system.)
