CHAPTER 1.6 - Juvenile Reentry Grant for the Reentry of Persons Discharged from the Division of Juvenile Facilities
(a) There is hereby established a Juvenile Reentry Fund. Moneys allocated for local supervision of persons discharged from the custody of the Division of Juvenile Facilities authorized in Sections 1983 and 1984 shall be deposited into this fund from the General Fund. Any moneys deposited into this fund shall be administered by the Controller and the share calculated for each county probation department shall be transferred to its Juvenile Reentry Fund authorized in subdivision (b).
(b) Each county is hereby authorized to establish in each county treasury a Juvenile Reentry Fund to receive all amounts allocated to that county probation department for purposes of implementing this chapter.
(c) Allocations from the Juvenile Reentry Fund shall be expended exclusively to address local program needs for persons discharged from the custody of the Division of Juvenile Facilities. County probation departments, in expending the Juvenile Reentry Grant allocation, shall provide evidence-based supervision and detention practices and rehabilitative services to persons who are subject to the jurisdiction of the juvenile court who were committed to and discharged from the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Facilities. “Evidence-based” refers to supervision and detention policies, procedures, programs, and practices demonstrated by scientific research to reduce recidivism among individuals on probation or under postrelease supervision.
(d) Funds allocated pursuant to subdivision (c) shall not be used by local agencies to supplant other funding for Public Safety Services, as defined in Section 36 of Article XIII of the California Constitution.
(e) The funding provided under this chapter is intended to provide payment in full for all local government costs of the supervision, programming, education, incarceration or any other cost resulting from persons discharged from custody or held in local facilities pursuant to the provisions of this act.
