The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and The Council on Criminal Justice and Behavioral Health (CCJBH) are pleased to announce the fifth and final session of our California Housing Recommendations Implementation webinar series. Participants will hear from people with lived experience with rental assistance and supportive services. This webinar will expand participants’ knowledge about upcoming Cal-AIM benefits related to (1) enhanced care management and (2) community supports for people with justice involvement. The webinar will also introduce participants to strategies to develop flexible funding streams to meet immediate housing needs.
