Getting Started

Getting Started: A Guidebook for Sustainability and Scaling takes local leaders through the process of identifying a funding plan to support data-driven strategies that reduce the number of people in jails who have mental illnesses or substance use disorders. The guidebook contains two parts that are designed to be used hand in hand:

  1. A Planning Guide that takes leaders of local initiatives through identifying measurable goals and aligning funding to achieve those goals; and
  2. An Investment Calculation Workbook, which assists jurisdictions in developing an initiative budget step by step, item by item.
