Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
This report is informational only, no impact on Net County Cost.

Background
On May 24, 2011, the Board approved the submittal of the Probation Department's re-application and plan to the Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) (previously Corrections Standard Authority CSA) for continued funding of the CART Program from the JJCPA (10-0342, Item No. 21). Subsequently, BSCC received our application package and gave final approval for funding on May 26, 2011.

Reason for Recommendation
The Probation Department submitted the required annual report to BSCC on September 13, 2012. In accordance with the above requirement, the Department submits this annual progress report to the Clerk of the Board's Office prior to the October 15, 2012 deadline.

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012 outcomes are detailed in the attached report.
