Measure O: County of Sonoma, Mental Health, Addiction and Homeless Services
During the November 2020 election, voters in Sonoma County approved Measure O, ensuring a steady and reliable source of funding to address Mental Health and Homelessness that will expand needed services for our citizens for the next 10 years.
Measure O funding supports Behavioral Health Facilities, Emergency Psychiatric Services, Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Outpatient Services, Behavioral Health and Homelessness Care Coordination, and Transitional and Permanent Supportive Housing. We estimate over the next 10 years the County will receive $250 million ($25 million annually) to be spent on behavioral health facilities, emergency psychiatric/crisis services, mental health and substance use disorder outpatient services, behavioral health homeless/care coordination and transitional and permanent supportive housing.
At this time, the Sonoma County Department of Health Services is putting together the infrastructure to support measure O.
