Measure O Has Passed!
During the November elections, voters in Sonoma County likely approved Measure O, ensuring a steady and reliable source of funding to address Mental Health and Homelessness that will expand needed services for our citizens for the next 10 years. The sales tax measure needed to pass with two-thirds majority and has received 67.99 percent of the votes in its favor.
This is a remarkable show of support during this incredibly challenging time – acknowledging the shared understanding of the importance of our collective mental health and wellness in our community. Although the results will not be officially certified until the end of this month, we expect a win and are eager to begin working with you all to take on ensuring better access to mental health and homelessness services for Sonoma County.
As a reminder, Measure O funding will support Behavioral Health Facilities, Emergency Psychiatric Services, Mental Health and Substance Use Disorder Outpatient Services, Behavioral Health and Homelessness Care Coordination, and Transitional and Permanent Supportive Housing.
