Tennessee Pre-Arrest Diversion Infrastructure Program

In the FY20 budget, Governor Lee and the Tennessee General Assembly provided an additional $1.5 million for a second round of pre-arrest diversion infrastructure grants. Applicants were asked to focus on rural, underserved, and distressed areas of the state with emphasis on local community investment to sustain programming after the capital grant. Selected agencies have designed programs to serve residents of at least eleven rural counties including two distressed counties. Grant recommendations were made by TDMHSAS, in consultation with the Department of Finance and Administration, and will be administered by the Department of General Services after approval by the State Building Commission.
