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.
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)
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
