The City of Charlottesville served as fiscal agent for the Commission on Children & Families (CCF) until January 1, 2007, at which time Albemarle County became their fiscal agent. CCF helps support many agencies between the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, including Community Attention. After reviewing information between the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, it has come to attention that Community Attention never received their FY 2007 4th quarter payment, in the amount of $152,422.75, from CCF. These monies have remained in CCF’s Fund Balance since FY 2007 and will need to be appropriated so that payment can be made to Community Attention.

Board Contingency 8,853.00
The County of Albemarle serves as the fiscal agent for grant funds received from the Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services for Local Probation/Community Corrections and Pretrial Services. As the grant administrator, the County services as fiscal agent and contracts with Offender Aid & Restoration (OAR) to provide these services for a nine jurisdictional area. During the 2008 General Assembly budget deliberations, the grant award to Albemarle County was reduced $30,528.00. This resulted in a net reduction of $8,750.00 from the initial appropriated grant budget. OAR requested additional local funding from the nine participating jurisdictions and on August 6, 2008, the Board of Supervisors agreed to provide $8,853.00 in supplemental funding to OAR for the County’s share of this reduction. OAR successfully received additional funding from six of the participation jurisdictions, including Albemarle County, and will use their available fund balance to cover the remaining shortfall. In addition to the reduction in the pretrial/community correction portion of this grant, DCJS has recently notified the County of an additional funding reduction of $21,471.00 for the Public Inebriate Center. The County contracts with Region Ten for these services.
This appropriation will adjust the budget for the grant to reflect the net decrease in grant revenues and expenditures from the adopted budget and will provide $8,853.00 in supplemental funding to OAR from the Board’s contingency.
