(a) Agencies providing supervision to offenders on probation, parole, or supervised release are eligible for funding to facilitate access to community options including, but not limited to, inpatient chemical dependency treatment for nonviolent controlled substance offenders to address and correct behavior that is, or is likely to result in, a technical violation of the conditions of release. For purposes of this section, "nonviolent controlled substance offender" is a person who meets the criteria described under section 244.0513, subdivision 2, clauses (1), (2), and (5), and "technical violation" means a violation of a court order of probation, condition of parole, or condition of supervised release, except an allegation of a subsequent criminal act that is alleged in a formal complaint, citation, or petition.

(b) The Department of Corrections shall issue annual funding of $160,000 to each recipient.

(c) The commissioner of corrections shall submit an annual report to the chairs of the house of representatives and senate committees with jurisdiction over public safety policy and finance by January 15 of each year. At a minimum, the report must include:

(1) the community services accessed as a result of the funding;

(2) a summary of the type of supervision offenders were under when funding was used to help access a community option;

(3) the number of individuals who completed, and the number who failed to complete, programs accessed as a result of this funding;

(4) the number of individuals who violated the terms of release following participation in a program accessed as a result of this funding, separating technical violations and new criminal offenses;

(5) the number of individuals who completed or were discharged from probation after participating in the program;

(6) the number of individuals identified in clause (5) who committed a new offense after discharge from the program;

(7) identification of barriers nonviolent controlled substance offenders face in accessing community services and a description of how the program navigates those barriers; and

(8) identification of gaps in existing community services for nonviolent controlled substance offenders.
