    Report on the implementation plan for the financial realignment of Virginia's public behavioral health system, including: (i) a timeline and funding mechanism to eliminate the extraordinary barriers list in state hospitals and to maximize the use of community resources for individuals discharged or diverted from state facility care; (ii) sources for bridge funding, to ensure continuity of care in transitioning patients to the community, and to address one-time, non-recurring expenses associated with the implementation of these reinvestment projects; (iii) state hospital appropriations that can be made available to community services boards to expand community mental health and substance abuse program capacity to serve individuals who are discharged or diverted from admission; (iv) financial incentive for community services boards to serve individuals in the community rather than state hospitals; (v) detailed state hospital employee transition plans that identify all available employment options for each affected position, including transfers to vacant positions in either Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services facilities or community services boards; (vi) legislation and Appropriation Act language needed to achieve financial realignment; and (vii) matrices to assess performance outcomes.
