The Federal Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) assess a state’s performance with regard to seven child welfare outcomes pertaining to children’s safety, permanency and well-being.  The CFSR found Virginia’s (and all other states’) child welfare program to be substantially out of compliance in several areas.  Therefore, the State is required to implement a Program Improvement Plan (PIP).  In order to strengthen Virginia’s child welfare system and to improve outcomes, the State allocated additional general funds to help implement the PIP.  Albemarle County Department of Social Services will use these funds to focus on improving an outcome that has historically fallen short of the Federal standard - to increasing the percentage of children who reunify with their prior custodian within twelve months of entering foster care.

 

The allocation for Albemarle County is $54,600.00 and requires a 20% local match of $13,650.00.  The local match will be funded with existing appropriated funds within the Department of Social Services’ operating budget.
