How are Prop. 69 funds allocated?
For funds received in 2005 and 2006, 30% stays in the county. For funds received in 2007, 50% stays in the county. For funds received in 2008 and after, 75% stays in the county. Generally, within the county, the money is to be used to reimburse local law enforcement for DNA collection expenses and verification of offender/arrestee identity & qualifying status expenses, and to reimburse local and state crime laboratories for evidence analysis and storage costs. There are no statutory requirements controlling disbursement of funds at the county level. It is up to each individual county to apportion funds within that county and to define reimbursement expenses. • It appears the initial split of funding between the State and Counties as well as the loan to the State fund took into consideration the need for CDC and CYA to obtain samples from current inmates and parolees under their supervision, but did not take into consideration the costs to Counties to obtain samples from the probationer
