Background and Discussion:
The Jail Diversion Grant is administered by the Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD. The Sheriff's Office helps to provide the required match through contributions related to the 24-bed jail diversion pod, JPC property valuation, and the costs of personnel assigned to certain mental health-related tasks.

Expected Impact:
The contributions from the Sheriff help to meet the grant's match requirements.

Alternative Options:
Not providing these contributions would make it difficult for Harris County to meet the grant's match requirements.

Alignment with Goal(s):
_X Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
