CSAC Institute – Realignment 301: Where the Funds Flow (307)
Detailed overview of realignment accounts and funding streams
Where do realignment funds come from and how do they flow through county systems and programs? This advanced course focuses on the funding and financial elements of 1999 and 2011 realignment and a 2013 update. It takes detailed looks at the specifics of fiscal issues: source of funds, uses and restrictions, how the flow of realignment (and VLF) funding works, reporting requirements and other fiscal issues. Particular emphasis is on how the 2011 realignment affects funding and fund flow, and the changes to realignment funding made in the FY 2013-14 state budget. This class is ideal for executives, senior analysts and senior managers who manage realignment funds. Senior executives and elected officials will also find value in understanding realignment funding. Previous participation in an Institute realignment course – or significant experience – is a prerequisite.
Instructors: Andrew Pease, Executive Finance Director, San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency; Robert Manchia, San Mateo County Human Services Agency; and other experts in realignment funding.
