REPORT

There is no Net County Cost associated with the recommended actions as costs associated with this amendment will be funded with Local Innovation Sub Account funds.  Approval of the recommended amendment will continue to allow a Boys & Girls Club (B&GC) onsite at the Juvenile Justice Campus (JJC), to provide recreational activities, and continue to provide a Targeted Re-Entry (TRE) Program that will include pre and post-release services to the County.  The B&GC has provided these services to the County since December 2008.  The current Agreement for these services provides a total of $30,000 annually to the B&GC, which is funded with Youthful Offender Block Grant (YOBG) funds. This item is countywide.

 

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

 

If the recommended actions are not approved, the services provided by the B&GC at the JJC may be discontinued or reduced due to lack of funding. 

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

 

There is no increase in Net County Cost associated with the recommended actions.  Funding for this recommended amendment will be obtained from the Local Innovation Sub Account Org 3438.  The recommended amendment will increase the annual compensation for the B&GC services from $30,000 to $80,000.  A total of $30,000 will be funded with the Youthful Offender Block Grant, and $50,000 will be funded from the Local Innovation Sub Account annually through December 15, 2021. The Recommended Budget Resolutions will provide the additional appropriations and revenue to cover the costs of the recommended amendment for FY 2018-19.  Sufficient appropriations will be included in future budget requests.

 

DISCUSSION:

 

Since December 2008, the County has had an Agreement with the B&GC to assist the Probation Department in transitioning youthful offenders back into the community by providing a TRE Program at the JJC, as well as providing recreational services to other youth not in the TRE program. The first three years of the program (2008-2011) were entirely funded by the B&GC, which received a $100,000 grant from the Fresno Regional Foundation. When the grant funds were exhausted and no alternative revenue sources were identified by the B&GC, the Board approved the use of Juvenile Special Deposit and then YOBG funds to continue to partially offset the cost of the TRE Program at the JJC. The current agreement, which was approved by the Board on December 2016, provides a total of $30,000 annually in YOBG funds for the B&GC program. The B&GC received approximately $80,000 in Community Recidivism Reduction Grant funds in FY 2015-16 ($50,000) and FY 2016-17 ($29,687).  In addition, the B&GC also received approximately $37,000 in Local Innovation Subaccount funds in FY 2017-18.     

 

The recommended actions will provide an additional $50,000 annually in funding through December 2021 to allow the B&GC to continue to provide a TRE Program that includes pre and post-release services to the County. Approval of the recommended actions will restore funding to a level of $80,000 annually for the B&GC program.

 

The Local Innovation Subaccount funds were created in accordance with Government Code Section 30029.07(b), which states that beginning in Fiscal Year 2015-16, each county treasurer or other appropriate official shall create a Local Innovation Subaccount and transfer 10 percent of the moneys received during a fiscal year from each of the following state accounts:

 

   (1) The Trial Court Security Growth Special Account.

   (2) The Community Corrections Growth Special Account.

   (3) The District Attorney and Public Defender Growth Special Account.

   (4) The Juvenile Justice Growth Special Account.

 

The subaccount funds are intended to promote local innovation and county decision making. Expenditure decisions for the Local Innovation Subaccount are determined by your Board. The subaccount can be used to fund any activity that is otherwise allowable for any of the above accounts that fund the innovation subaccount.  Staff will be bringing additional items to be funded with the Local Innovation Subaccount for your Board’s review and approval in the future.

 

The B&GC provides pre and post-release services to the youth at the JJC.  Pre-release services include, but are not limited to, social and life skill building, vocational and career development, character development, leadership, and recreational opportunities. The B&GC also provides recreational services to non-TRE in-custody youth. During the post-release re-entry process from the JJC into the community, TRE program participants transition to a designated B&GC near their residence zip code, and continue their relationship with B&GC case management and supervision towards a successful transition back into the community.
