Background and Discussion:
On June 30, 2020, Commissioners Court accepted renewal grant funds from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission in the amount of $5 million, with a required match of $5 million to be provided by The Harris Center and other stakeholders, for the FY 2021 Harris County Mental Health-Jail Diversion Program.

The 2-year Jail Diversion grant cycle will end on August 31, 2022, and so to fully expend the project's unspent funds, the remaining budget will need to be moved from Y1 to Y2 so that a PO in the current year can be opened.

Expected Impact:
Funds will be used for the Jail Diversion program.
