Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    As this pilot project is presented as a joint program between WVDOC and the DHHR, this fiscal note represents costs to the WVDOC to identify inmate participants, organize program plans, and track project outcomes. Approximately 50% of inmates sentenced to the WVDOC are parents and are potentially eligible to participate, however this bill requires that background information, not always readily available, be gathered and that program outcomes are tracked and reported. This is an impact on staffing and would require an estimated .5 full time equivalent positions at each major facility (excluding work releases and work camps, Anthony Correctional Center (youthful offenders), Martinsburg Correctional Center (Intake)). As a result the WVDOC would request three additional positions (Case Managers) to facilitate this program at an estimated cost of $109,872 annually (includes starting salaries and benefits).
