Title

Consider recommendations regarding an acceptance of grant funding from the California Department of Justice (DOJ) to allow for effective enforcement of firearm laws, as follows:

(4/5 Vote Required)

 

a) Accept a grant of $539,660.00 from the Office of the Attorney General California DOJ to allow for effective enforcement of firearm laws that prohibit certain individuals from possessing firearms and ammunition for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-2022, FY 2022-2023, and FY 2023-2024;

 

b) Approve and authorize the Sheriff to execute a Memorandum of Understanding between the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office and the California DOJ regarding the grant funding for the Gun Violence Reduction Program;

 

c) Approve Budget Revision Request No. 0008068, appropriating $539,660.00 in grant revenue and corresponding expense; and

 

d) Find that the grant funding approval is a government funding mechanism which is not a project pursuant to section 15378(b)(4) of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, because they consist of government funding mechanisms or other government fiscal activities, which do not involve any commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment.
