Report 2011-121: Probationers' Domestic Violence Payments: Improved Processes for Managing and Distributing These Payments Could Increase Support for Local Shelters (Release Date: September 2012)

Recommendation #21 To: Sacramento County

Sacramento County should increase its contracted spending for shelter services so that it reduces the balance of its special fund down to a level that is reasonable considering the needs of the fund.

60-Day Agency Response

Sacramento County obtained its board of supervisors' approval in November 2012 to increase its contracted spending for shelter services by more than $400,000 to provide additional domestic violence services and crisis intervention through June 2014. Further, it obtained approval to issue a Request for Interest for an additional $100,000 to contract with providers of domestic violence services to underserved populations. (See 2013-406, p. 184)
