Group: UC Davis, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation

Description

The term “gate money” refers to the predetermined amount of money given to eligible inmates upon discharge from state prison. From state to state, however, both the amount of money provided and the source of those monies differ. The purpose of the current report is to present descriptive information on the gate money policies and practices of California; to compare those policies and practices with those of other states; and to discuss what little published information is available on how these payment amounts are determined, the intended uses of the payments, how inmates actually utilize these funds, and—ultimately—whether the provision of gate money has an effect on the sizable, nationwide problem of recidivism.
