RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #24-717-8 with Portia Bell Hume Behavioral Health and Training Center, a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $4,147,691, to provide Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) Full Service Partnership (FSP) Services to adults with serious mental illness who are homeless or at serious risk of homelessness, for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $2,073,845.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $4,147,691 and will be funded by 20% Federal Medi-Cal ($829,538) and 80% Mental Health Services Act ($3,318,153) revenues. (No rate increase)

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing a FSP Program funded by the MHSA, providing a comprehensive range of services and supports in West, Central and East Contra Costa County to adults with serious mental illness who are homeless or at serious risk of homelessness.


BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)
The County has worked with this contractor for these services since 2014. Most recently on December 10, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Contract #24-717-7 with Portia Bell Hume Behavioral Health and Training Center for the provision of MHSA FSP Program services to adults with serious mental illness who are homeless or at serious risk of homelessness for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020.  
  
Approval of Novation Contract #24-717-8 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, mentally ill adults who are homeless will not have access to the contractor’s mental health services, leading to reduced levels of service to the community and potential placement in higher levels of care.
