REALIGNMENT & COMMUNITY CORRECTIONS PARTNERSHIPS
In 2011, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 109 and AB 117, hereafter referred to as Realignment, which made “fundamental changes to California’s correctional system to stop the costly, ineffective and unsafe "revolving door" of lower-level offenders and parole violators through our state prisons” (excerpt from Governor’s Press Release, April 5, 2011).
- shifted responsibility for all sentenced non-violent, non-serious, non-sex offenders from state to local jurisdictions;
- established Post-Release Community Supervision;
- changed the parole revocation process;
- tasked Community Corrections Partnerships with planning for the change and implementing the local plans; and
- gave local law enforcement the right and the ability to manage offenders in smarter and cost-effective ways
Fiscal Year (FY) 2023-24 Community Corrections Partnership Survey
The Community Corrections Partnership (CCP) Survey is a mechanism to collect valuable information to educate and inform California lawmakers, the public, and the media of the continued efforts counties have made in the previous year in implementing the shift in public safety and rehabilitation. Responses to the yearly CCP Surveys are compiled into the annual BSCC Reports on the Implementation of Community Corrections Partnership Plans .
The Budget Act of 2023 (SB 101, Chapter 12), in relevant part, appropriates $7,950,000 to California counties as follows:
Counties are eligible to receive funding if they submit an updated Community Corrections Partnership plan and a report to the Board of State and Community Corrections by December 15, 2023, that provides information about the actual implementation of the 2022-23 Community Corrections Partnership plan.
The report shall include, but not be limited to, progress in achieving outcome measures as identified in the plan or otherwise available. Additionally, the report shall include plans for the 2023–24 allocation of funds, including future outcome measures, programs and services, and funding priorities.
The funds shall be distributed by January 31, 2024, to counties that comply with provisions as follows: (a) $100,000 to each county with a population of 0 to 200,000, inclusive, (b) $150,000 to each county with a population of 200,001 to 749,999, inclusive, and (c) $200,000 to each county with a population of 750,000 and above. Allocations will be determined based on the most recent county population data published by the Department of Finance.
The report, referenced in the Budget Act, is the CCP Survey provided by the BSCC to all county CCPs on an annual basis.
FY 2023-24 CCP Survey and Plan
For the FY2023-24 CCP Survey reporting process, the BSCC is piloting an online submission portal. Through the linked button provided below, county CCP’s will input their CCP Survey, Part A (narrative information) and upload the CCP Survey, Part B (financial information), optional material, and their updated CCP Plan for 2023-2024.
You will be prompted to create a free Submittable account and log-in (or sign into an existing account) prior to accessing the online CCP Survey. The account is email-specific; therefore, it is advised that if multiple individuals need to compile the data, the CCP uses the fill-in Word template for this purpose and then designate a single individual associated with the account’s email to enter the information into the portal and upload all required attachments.
After an account is established, CCPs or their designated individual may proceed with the submission process. As part of this process, applicants will be required to upload mandatory attachments (listed below). Applicants will download these documents from the this page, complete these attachments ahead of time, and then upload them to the BSCC Submittable portal. Mandatory documents include: Part A of the CCP Survey (entered directly into the online portal); Part B of the CCP Survey (upload the Excel document when prompted); and an updated CCP plan.
**Note: You may start and stop your CCP Survey Package any time during the submission period. However, you must click the “Save Draft” button at the end of the Survey page to save any updates and/or changes you have made to your CCP Survey answers prior to submission, each time you log in to your CCP Survey. In addition, most of the fields within the BSCC Submittable portal require information to be entered; therefore, the system will not allow CCP Survey submission if all mandatory fields are not completed.
FY 2023-24 CCP Survey
- Part A - This fill-in Word template is for preparation purposes only. The information requested within this template is identical to the questions posed within the Part A, CCP Survey format in the BSCC-Submittable online submission portal. Narrative sections may be copied/pasted from the template into the online form.
- Additional Sheet for FY22-23 Goals, Objectives, and Outcome Measures (as needed: upload into the BSCC-Submittable online submission portal when prompted)
- Additional Sheet for FY23-24 Goals, Objectives, and Outcome Measures (as needed: upload into the BSCC-Submittable online submission portal when prompted)
- Part B - This form is provided in an Excel file format and is designed to collect information about the allocation of Public Safety Realignment dollars. This Excel document must be downloaded to your local computer, completed, saved, and then uploaded into the BSCC-Submittable online submission portal when prompted.
Updated CCP Plan for FY 2023-24
When prompted within the BSCC-Submittable online submission portal, please upload your county’s CCP Plan for 2023-2024.
The complete CCP Survey package, including all required attachments, shall be completed and submitted through the BSCC-Submittable online portal by December 15, 2023. Please be aware that a complete CCP Survey package, including an updated CCP plan for 2023-24, MUST be submitted to the BSCC to receive compensation.
NOTE: The information provided in the CCP Survey package will be made public by the BSCC in the annual report to the Governor’s Office and the Legislature on the implementation of Community Corrections Partnership plans on the BSCC website.
Confirmation of Receipt of the CCP Survey and Required Attachments
Within 2 hours of submission of the full CCP Survey package, respondents will receive a confirmation email from the BSCC stating the information has been received.

Prior CCP Plans
Since 2011, the BSCC has been the repository for the CCP Plans developed by each county to implement the provisions of public safety realignment. Senate Bill 678 on Criminal Recidivism introduced the concept of a CCP. At its core, the CCP is comprised of local stakeholders collectively meeting and strategically making decisions. County implementation plans – also known as Realignment Plans or AB109 plans – provide the approaches counties are utilizing in realigning state public safety functions to their local jurisdictions.
A CCP plan and an original county profile were required of each county in FY 2011-12. Subsequent CPP updates are provided on a voluntary basis. All CCP plans submitted to the BSCC to date and the original county profiles are listed below.
2022-23 CCP Plans
2021-22 CCP Plans
BSCC Reports on the Implementation of CCP Plans
Commencing January 1, 2013, and annually thereafter, the BSCC is charged with collecting and analyzing available data regarding the implementation of local plans and other outcome-based measures. By July 1 of each year the Board must provide to the Governor and the Legislature a report on the implementation of CCP plans. These reports provide an annual snapshot of each county’s unique experience in implementing the locally developed CCP realignment implementation plan, the CCP plan objectives, identified outcomes, outcome measures, and data results; and how the county used its realignment funding.
In addition, the annual reports outline the many promising and evidence-based efforts counties have adopted to help this population of offenders end the cycle of recidivism while keeping communities safe.
