05/18/20

Supervisors Nathan Fletcher and Diane Jacob at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting will present a $34 million Economic and Humanitarian Stimulus Package to be a catalyst for local business, more behavioral health services, and strengthening children and families -- all of whom have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Recommendations:

  • $17,000,000 for implementing economic stimulus programs for restaurants and small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • $15,000,000 for Behavioral Health Services (mental health and substance abuse) for telehealth capabilities, electronic health record upgrades and care coordination, outreach and engagement and workforce recruitment and retention.  
  • $2,000,000 in Child Welfare Services to enhance existing contracts to include expanded outreach, service and support for at-risk families identified by school districts who have been disconnected since school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
