Mental Health Services Act

The Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), also known as Proposition 63, was approved by voters in 2004 and imposes a 1% income tax on personal income in excess of $1 million. This tax brings in approximately 2 billion dollars per year to the state of California. MHSA addresses a broad continuum of prevention, early intervention and service needs to more effectively support the mental health system.

Fiscal Year 21/22 Annual Plan Update AMENDMENT

Due to higher than anticipated revenues in Fiscal Year (FY) 20/21, Nevada County is proposing an amendment to its FY 21/22 Annual Plan Update. Priorities for funding were one-time investments that align with community needs and the existing Three-Year Plan. 

Major changes included in this amendment include:

  • One-time and strategic increases for currently funded PEI and CSS Providers to cover one-time capital costs and certain programmatic increases
  • New PEI Programs: LGBTQ+ support in high schools and Community Crisis Response
  • Set-aside for Project Based Housing: lease and/or purchase of permanent supportive housing for individuals with serious mental illness
