TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - The City of Corning is distributing $3.5 million in Proposition 47 grant money to three programs in the county.

The money is divided between Empower Tehama, River Cities Counseling and the Job Training Center.

The City of Corning acted as the lead agency and applied for the Prop. 47 grant.

That's a grant geared toward helping people in the criminal system with drug treatment and mental health services.

There are currently 200 juveniles and adults in Tehama County's criminal justice system.

80% of those have diagnosable mental health or substance abuse disorders.

"I think it's a good idea for the community to help the prop 47 but I also believe they should be helping the community out more like fixing the streets and building new places for people to go visit her in corning but other than that I think its really nice of them," a Corning resident said.

"I've seen a lot of meth addict walking around the streets and they're dealing drugs at night time it doesn't matter what you do you know I think we need to buckle down on it," resident Gabriel Baylor said.

The proposition uses reduced incarceration costs – and those savings are invested back into local community treatment programs.

"It'll just bring more of them in the more we spend on it the more, the more we'll get here they'll be lining up at the door just like they do at the welfare office they'll be lining up for the fresh needles they'll be lining up – no we should make it harder for them to be here not easier," resident Ron Manning said.

"There's a lot of drugs and if you make it easier on the criminal then there's no consequences," resident Luke Green said.

Director of Empower Tehama said the goal is to keep those offenders out of the criminal justice system – and in order to do that, they have to help them develop life skills.

Empower Tehama hopes to be up and running and have their first client by mid-October.

The last full week of November began in a beautiful way around northern California with sunshine, a few clouds and above average highs. A disturbance will bring a chance for mountain showers late Tuesday, but little will fall.
