SUBMITTED BY: Dawan Utecht, Director, Department of Behavioral Health

SUBJECT: Approval to Proceed with Proposed Innovation Programs

RECOMMENDED ACTION(S):
TITLE
Approve and authorize the Department of Behavioral Health to move forward with next planning steps in the development of proposed Innovation programs.
REPORT
Approval of the recommended action will allow the Department of Behavioral Health to move forward with next planning steps for three Innovation (INN) programs and secure Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) INN funds which were subject to reversion. The INN programs were previously included in the Department's approved 3-year expenditure plan and annual updates for FY 17/18, 18/19, and 19/20. The INN programs were recently presented to Mental Health Services Oversight and Accountability Commission (MHSOAC) and were approved with the contingency of local Board of Supervisor approval to move forward with next steps.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION(S):

Should your Board not approve the recommended action, the Department would revert INN funds back to the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) which would be detrimental to the Department's efforts to provide behavioral health services in the community.

FISCAL IMPACT:

There is no increase in Net County Cost associated with the recommended action. Programs will be fully funded with MHSA INN funds. The total funding for the three INN programs is $6,927,000.

INN Program Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Total
The Lodge $1,399,333 $1,400,333 $1,400,334 $4,200,000
Handle with Care Plus+ $502,140 $511,897 $512,963 $1,527,000
Project RideWell $386,391 $388,187 $454,422 $1,200,000

Your Board previously approved of the proposed INN programs. Agreements for the proposed programs would be brought to your Board for approval at a later date prior to implementation. Sufficient appropriations and estimated revenues are included in the Department's Org 5630 FY 2019-20 Adop...
