As part of the Recommended Budget, the Board approved a second-year installment of $100 million in direct community investments and alternatives to incarceration, bringing year two CFCI spending to $200 million total—a reflection of the initial estimate, which is expected to change in future years. The Recommended Budget also included additional commitments, outside of the CFCI spending plan, to support these priorities, including funding to establish two new departments committed to Youth Development and to Justice, Care, and Opportunities, as well as support for existing departments committed to racial justice, such as the offices of the Public Defender and Alternate Public Defender.
