(b) The Department of Finance shall recalculate the resource base used in determining the General Growth Subaccount allocations to the Health Account, Mental Health Account, and Social Services Account of the local health and welfare trust fund of each city, county, and city and county for the 1994–95 fiscal year general growth allocations according to subdivisions (c) and (d). For the 1995–96 fiscal year and annually until the end of the 2012–13 fiscal year, the Department of Finance shall prepare the schedule of allocations of growth based upon the recalculation of the resource base as provided by subdivision (c).

(c) For the Mental Health Account, the Department of Finance shall do all of the following:

(1) Use the following sources as reported by the State Department of Health Care Services:

(A) The final December 1992 distribution of resources associated with Institutes for Mental Disease.

(B) The 1990–91 fiscal year state hospitals and community mental health allocations.

(C) Allocations for services provided for under Chapter 1294 of the Statutes of 1989.

(2) Expand the resource base with the following nonrealigned funding sources as allocated among the counties:

(A) Tobacco surtax allocations made under Chapter 1331 of the Statutes of 1989 and Chapter 51 of the Statutes of 1990.

(B) For the 1994–95 allocation year only, Chapter 1323 of the Statutes of 1990.

(C) 1993–94 fiscal year federal homeless block grant allocation.

(D) 1993–94 fiscal year Mental Health Special Education allocations.

(E) 1993–94 fiscal year allocations for the system of care for children, in accordance with Chapter 1229 of the Statutes of 1992.

(d) For the Health Account, the Department of Finance shall use the historical resource base of state funds as allocated among the counties, cities, and city and county as reported by the former State Department of Health Services in a September 17, 1991, report of Indigent and Community Health Resources.

(e) The Department of Finance shall use these adjusted resource bases for the Health Account and Mental Health Account to calculate what the 1994–95 fiscal year General Growth Subaccount allocations would have been, and together with 1994–95 fiscal year Base Restoration Subaccount allocations, CMSP subaccount allocations, equity allocations to the Health Account and Mental Health Account as adjusted by subparagraph (E) of paragraph (2) of subdivision (c) of Section 17606.05, as that subparagraph read on January 1, 2015, and special equity allocations to the Health Account and Mental Health Account as adjusted by subdivision (e) of Section 17606.15 reconstruct the 1994–95 fiscal year General Growth Subaccount resource base for the 1995–96 allocation year for each county, city, and city and county. Notwithstanding any other law, the actual 1994–95 general growth allocations shall not become part of the realignment base allocations to each county, city, and city and county. The total amounts distributed by the Controller for general growth for the 1994–95 allocation year shall be reallocated among the counties, cities, and city and county in the 1995–96 allocation year according to this paragraph, and shall be included in the general growth resource base for the 1996–97 allocation year and each fiscal year thereafter. For the 1996–97 allocation year through the 2017–18 fiscal year, the Department of Finance shall update the base with actual growth allocations to the Health Account, Mental Health Account, and Social Services Account of each county, city, and city and county local health and welfare trust fund in the prior year, and adjust for actual changes in nonrealigned funds specified in subdivision (c) in the year prior to the allocation year.

(f) For the 2013–14 fiscal year through the 2017–18 fiscal year, the Controller shall do all of the following:

(2) Allocate 18.4545 percent of the total General Growth Subaccount to the health account of each county, city, or city and county based on a schedule provided by the Department of Finance in accordance with subdivision (d).

(3) Allocate the remainder of the funds in the General Growth Subaccount to the family support account of each county or city and county based on a schedule provided by the Department of Finance. These funds shall be expended in accordance with Section 17601.50.

(g) (1) Notwithstanding subdivision (f), for the 2016–17 fiscal year, the Controller shall allocate funds in the following amounts from the General Growth Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account to the social services account of each county and city and county based on a schedule provided by the Department of Finance developed in consultation with the California State Association of Counties:

(2) The allocation of funds from the General Growth Subaccount of the Sales Tax Account to the social services account as described in paragraph (1) shall not apply to the amount of funds available for allocation to the Mental Health Accounts and health accounts of the Cities of Berkeley, Pasadena, Tri-City, and Long Beach.

(h) For the 2018–19 fiscal year and every fiscal year thereafter, the Controller shall do all of the following:

(1) Allocate 37.433321 percent of the total General Growth Subaccount to the Mental Health Account of each county, city, or city and county using the 2017–18 fiscal year percentage distribution of general growth for mental health.
