The County of San Diego on Monday released a $6.21 billion recommended budget for fiscal year 2019-2020 that invests $112 million in new spending to help the region’s most vulnerable residents.
Areas for the increased funding include people with mental health or substance use disorders, those experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness, address a lack of affordable housing, and assist children and families in the foster care system.

The size, diversity, and strength of a local government’s tax base impact its ability to generate financial resources. Changing economic conditions - including changes in the real estate market - impact the county's revenue and workload, along with the strategies used to manage the public's resources. Changes in the real estate market directly impact the County's general purpose revenue, the Board of Supervisor's only source of discretionary spending.
