AB 109 Community Programs
Learn about the County's comprehensive process for implementing the funding allocated for Community Programs in the FY 2012-13 Budget for the County's AB 109 program.

In 2011, the California Legislature passed the Public Safety Realignment Act (AB 109), which transferred responsibility for supervising specific low-level inmates and parolees from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to counties. This Act tasked local government at the county level with developing a new approach to reducing recidivism among certain low-level felony criminal offenders.

AB 109 also tasked the local Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) with recommending to the County Board of Supervisors a plan for implementing public safety Realignment. The Board of Supervisors adopted the Contra Costa County Realignment Plan on October 4, 2011, as recommended by the Executive Committee of the CCP. On November 9, 2012, the CCP Executive Committee adopted a finalized Operational Plan and on December 4, 2012 adopted a FY 2012/13 Public Safety Realignment Budget for recommendation to the Board of Supervisors. At its January 15, 2013 meeting, the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors approved the FY 2012/13 AB 109 Public Safety Realignment Budget. The approved FY 2012/13 AB 109 Public Safety Realignment Budget included $4,035,000 for Community Programs as follows:

  • Employment Support and Placement Services, $2,000,000
  • Planning and Implementation of (3) One-Stop Centers, $1,320,000
  • Short and Long-Term Housing Access, $500,000
  • Peer and Mentoring Services, $200,000
  • Development of a Reentry Resource Guide, $15,000

This tool is presently utilized by the AB 109 unit in the Probation Department.
