ACTION: X INFORMATION:
Each year, the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Services (DBHDS) requires Community Service Boards (CSBs) to enter into Community Services Performance Contracts for the delivery of certain services in their respective communities. Although Region Ten, as the designated CSB for Albemarle County, is the representative party to this Contract, federal and state regulations require that the local governing bodies that have established a CSB approve the contract in order for the CSB to be eligible to receive state-controlled funding.
Goal 1: Enhance the Quality of Life for all Citizens
Annual Community Services Performance Contracts between the DBHDS 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. These contracts describe sources of funding for the CSB, stipulate requirements for compliance with federal regulations and establish performance measures. Even though the County is not a party to this Contract, Virginia Code § 37.2-508(D) requires that the local governing bodies that have established a CSB approve the Contract in order for the CSB to be eligible to receive state-controlled funds for identified services. Staff has reviewed the proposed Contract and found no terms adverse to the County.
The County’s FY10 appropriation for Region Ten totals $569,531. 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 ($118,904) represents the County’s share of local programs funded by the City and County such as the Mohr Center, jail services, children services, and early intervention grants for children.
Staff recommends that the Board approve the Fiscal Year 2010 Community Services Performance Contract.
A copy of the FY10 Region Ten Performance Contract is available in the Clerk’s Office for review.
