BACKGROUND:

Each year, Region Ten and other Community Services Boards (CSBs) throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia enter into Performance Agreements with the Virginia Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation & Substance Abuse Services (VDMHMRSAS) for the delivery of these services in their respective communities. Although Region Ten is the primary signatory to this agreement, federal and state regulations require that the local governing bodies establishing a CSB approve these contracts for the CSB to be eligible to receive state-controlled funds for these services.

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 1: Enhance the Quality of Life for all Albemarle County Residents.

 

DISCUSSION:

Annual Performance Contracts between the VDMHMRSAS and CSBs delineate the responsibilities of the Commonwealth and the CSBs for the delivery of mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse services in their respective service areas.  In addition, the contracts describe sources of funding for the CSB, stipulate requirements for compliance with federal regulations, establish performance measures, as well as procedures for administering these standards, and describe general terms and conditions for its administration.  Though the County of Albemarle is not a party to this contract, Virginia Code § 37.2-508(D) requires that the local governing bodies establishing a CSB approve these contracts for the CSB to be eligible to receive state-controlled funds for these services.  Staff has reviewed the proposed Contract and found no terms adverse to the County. 

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

The County’s FY08 appropriation for Region Ten totals $566,276.  Of this amount, $450,627 is identified as “comprehensive services,” including outpatient, case management, emergency, day support, residential, prevention and early intervention services for mental health, mental retardation, and substance use disorders and prevention.  The balance of funding ($115,649) represents the County’s share of local programs funded by the City and County such as the Mohr Center, jail services, children services, and child’s early intervention grant.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Recognizing the important services provided by Region Ten to the citizens of Albemarle County, as well as the requirements of the Code of Virginia for Region Ten to execute its FY08 Performance Contract with the VDMHMRSAS, it is recommended that the Board of Supervisors approve this Contract.

 

 

ATTACHMENTS:

A copy of the FY08 Region Ten Performance Agreement is available in the Clerk’s Office for review.
