Executive Summary:

This item requests approval of a transfer of $3,000,000 from the Human Services 1991 Realignment account to the Health Services 1991 Realignment account. Welfare and Institution Code Section 17600.20(a) allows counties to transfer up to ten percent of realignment funds between the various sub accounts that were realigned in 1991. This provision of the Welfare and Institution Code was created to give counties flexibility to make use of realignment funds in the best manner possible to serve the community.

 

Discussion:

Welfare and Institutions Code Section 17600.20(a) allows counties to transfer up to 10 percent of their Realignment funds between the various sub accounts that were realigned in 1991. This provision of the Welfare and Institution Code was created to give counties flexibility to make use of Realignment funds in the best manner possible to serve the community. The Human Services Department has agreed to a transfer of $3,000,000 of 1991 Realignment in fiscal year 2020-2021 to assist in reducing the Health Department’s funding gap and mitigating reductions. To make this adjustment for revenue residing within the Human Services 1991 Realignment account, the transfer must be approved by the Board at a regularly scheduled public meeting before the end of the fiscal year.

Realignment funding for Health and Mental Health has remained flat with no growth last three years. At the end of fiscal year 2020-2021, Human Services will have $3,508,983 remaining in Fund Balance following the transfer and the transfer of Realignment funds will assist Health Services in providing Mental Health services. Since fiscal year 2014-2015, the Human Services Department has transferred $11.6 million to assist with Health Services’ budget deficits. This requested $3 million for June 2021 will bring the life-to-date Realignment assistance to $14.6 million.
