The Budget Act of 2022, Assembly Bill 178, appropriated $40 million to be allocated to the Judicial Council to support firearm relinquishment efforts statewide. The Judicial Council of California, Center for Families, Children & the Courts, invites superior courts to apply for the AB 178 Firearm Relinquishment Grant. This funding is available to support court-based firearm relinquishment programs to ensure the consistent safe removal of firearms from individuals who become prohibited from owning or possessing firearms and ammunition pursuant to court order.
