Monthly Allocation Dashboard

Identifying the monthly allocation of county funds appropriated for MHSA services

Counties receive monthly MHSA allocation from the State Controller’s Office (SCO) based on prior month’s tax collection. This dashboard displays information on monthly allocation amounts by Mental Health Program (MHP) from August 2012 to present. To learn more about how allocation is determined please reference Department of Healthcare Services information notice 20-38 located,

Data for this tool is from SCO’s website on MHSA funds appropriation. Amounts displayed in this dashboard exclude withholding/returning of MHSA funds due to late filing of Revenue and Expenditure Reports (RERs) but do include re-allocation of reverted MHSA funds. Displays on monthly allocation amounts, month over month comparison and fiscal year-to-date comparison, at both statewide and MHP level, are included. Data was last updated on January 23, 2024.

Key Findings/Highlights

For the month of January 2024, statewide allocation is down 2.5% compared to the same period from fiscal year 2022-23.

For fiscal year 2023-24 (July 2023 to January 2024), statewide allocation is up 99.4% compared to the same period from fiscal year 2022-23.
The significant increase in August allocation relative to previous year is likely due to the distribution of the accrual account from previous fiscal years.
