a) Approve, ratify and authorize the Directors of the Department of Behavioral Wellness and DSS, or designees, to execute the ongoing MOU between the departments for the provision of two (2) dedicated Behavioral Wellness Mental Health Practitioners to provide Specialty Mental Health Services screenings, assessments and services to eligible DSS Child Welfare Services program clients, for an estimated revenue to Behavioral Wellness of $306,871.00 per year, inclusive of an estimated $171,463.00 paid by DSS to Behavioral Wellness and an estimated offset of Medi-Cal Federal Financial Participation of $135,408.00, beginning in Fiscal Year 2018-2019;

 

b) Adopt a Resolution effective January 28, 2019, which amends the Salary Resolution to add two (2) 1.0 FTE Mental Health Practitioner Intern/I/II positions;

 

c) Approve Budget Revision Request No. 0005919 increasing appropriations of an estimated amount of $306,871.00 in the Department of Behavioral Wellness, Mental Health Services Fund for Salaries and Benefits funded by unanticipated revenue funding from a Memorandum of Understanding with DSS ($171,463.00) and with a Behavioral Wellness offset of Medi-Cal Federal Financial Participation revenue ($135,408.00); and

 

d) Determine that the above actions are government fiscal activities or funding mechanisms which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment, and are therefore not a project under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to section 15378(b)(4) of the CEQA guidelines.
