| 1) Financing Pre-Arrest Diversion Programs Webinar
**Join PTACC National Founding Partner Community Catalyst for their October 4 webinar at 2 PM EST on financing deflection programs.**
Ensuring pre-arrest diversion programs are both comprehensive and sustainable requires diverse financing and deeply rooted community and government support. This webcast will provide an overview of financing options to help sites explore multiple options. Diversion programs in Tennessee and Minnesota will also discuss how they have tapped state and local funding, including reinvesting savings from health and human services.
