Implemented in 2005, the San Mateo Assessment and Referral Team (SMART) program is the first and only of its kind in California. Developed in collaboration between multiple agencies as a community resource, the program is funded in part by Measure K and the Mental Health Services Act. There are currently two SMART vans covering the county from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
