Pre-Arrest Diversion Infrastructure – Capital Grants

In state fiscal year 2020, Governor Bill Lee and the Tennessee General Assembly appropriated $1,500,000 to the Department of General Services (DGS) for the purpose of Pre-Arrest Diversion Infrastructure – Capital Grants. The Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, in consultation with the Department of Finance and Administration, shall recommend to the DGS to whom such grants shall be disbursed. Responses to this Announcement of Funding will inform recommendations for funding.

The goal of pre-arrest diversion is to reduce or eliminate the time individuals with a mental health, substance use, or co-occurring disorder spend incarcerated by redirecting them from the criminal justice system to community-based treatment and supports. Capital grant funding is not recurring and may only be used to support capital projects, not program operations.
