Youth Programs and Facilities Grant Program (YPFG)


On September 30, 2020, Governor Newsom signed Senate Bill 823, which began the closure of the state’s Division of Juvenile Justice, realigning those state functions to county governments. Under SB 823, DJJ intake will close for most youth on July 1, 2021, and counties then become fully responsible for housing, programming, and treatment of youth at higher offense and needs levels who can no longer be committed to DJJ.

As part of SB 823, $9.6 million was set aside for the Board of State and Community Corrections to “award one-time grants, to counties for the purpose of providing resources for infrastructure-related needs and improvements to assist counties in the development of a local continuum of care.
