Children's Services Act

About the Children’s Services Act

The Children’s Services Act (formerly known as the Comprehensive Services Act for At-Risk Youth and Families) is a 1993 Virginia Law that provides for the pooling of eight specific funding streams used to purchase services for high-risk youth. These funds are returned to the localities with a required state/local match and are managed by local interagency teams. The purpose of CSA is to provide high quality, child-centered, family-focused, cost-effective, community-based services to high-risk youth and their families.
