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 in order for the CSB to be eligible to receive state-controlled funding.

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 1: Enhance the Quality of Life for all Citizens

 

 

DISCUSSION:

Annual Performance Contracts between the VDMHMRSAS and CSBs delineate the responsibilities of the Common-wealth and the CSBs for the delivery of mental health, mental retardation and substance abuse services in their respective service areas.  These contracts describe sources of funding for the CSB, stipulate requirements for compliance with federal regulations and establish performance measures.  Although 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 in order 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 FY09 appropriation for Region Ten totals $566,276.  Of this amount, $450,627 is identified as “compre-hensive 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 jail services, children services, and early intervention grants for children.

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Board approve the Fiscal Year 2009 Performance Contract between Region Ten & the Virginia Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation & Substance Abuse Services (VDMHMRSAS).
