CSB Budget

County Executive presents FY 2015 Budget

On Tuesday, February 25, Fairfax County Executive Ed Long presented his FY 2015 Advertised Budget to the Board of Supervisors. There was no request for reductions to the CSB budget. In fact, the proposed budget includes additional County funding of $3.3 million specifically for the CSB. This includes an increase of $1.3 million to support June 2014 special education graduates of Fairfax County Public Schools who are eligible for employment and day support services and currently do not have a funding source for services.

The CSB Board sent a letter to the Fairfax County Human Services Council on March 13, 2014, expressing their support.

On March 18, 2014, the County Executive presented additional reductions to the FY 2015 Advertised Budget. Among the proposed reductions was elimination of the $1.3 million that had been included in the budget for CSB employment and day support programs for June 2014 special education graduates. Other proposed reductions would impact general relief funds, contractor rates, funding for youth behavioral health services and other areas that affect CSB and the people we serve. The CSB Board sent a letter to the county's Human Services Council in response.

The final budget is adopted by the Board of Supervisors on April 29 and becomes effective July 1, 2014. From April 8-10, 2014, the Board of Supervisors will hold Public Hearings on the FY 2015 budget. Sign up to speak at the public hearings or email your comments about the budget.

Board of Supervisors Approves Budget Carryover Package – CSB ends FY 2013 with positive balance

The CSB ended FY 2013 with a positive balance. The Board of Supervisors approved using part of the balance for two important initiatives: $800,000 for improvements to the agency's electronic health record system and $400,000 to prevent homelessness for individuals receiving CSB services. Read more about the FY 2013 budget carryover package that the Board of Supervisors approved on September 10, 2013.

Board of Supervisors Adopted Final FY 2014 Budget in April 2013

On April 30, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors adopted the Fiscal Year 2014 Budget, which identifies funding and priorities for the fiscal year that began on July 1, 2013, and ends on June 30, 2014. For the CSB, the final budget adopted by the BOS was similar to the version the County Executive had proposed in February.

The CSB received the following increases for FY 2014:

  1. $5.8 million to fully fund the CSB compensation and benefit costs. Most other Fairfax County agencies have these costs automatically approved as part of the budget process. The CSB, however, has a Special Revenue designation that requires a direct transfer of county funds.
  2. $1.2 million increase for the Infant and Toddler Connection, which provides early clinical intervention services for infants and toddlers up to age 3 who have developmental delays. The additional funding is needed to meet the continued growth in demand for services which the CSB is legally mandated to provide.
  3. $1.1 million for employment and day support services for special education graduates of Fairfax County Public Schools who are eligible but have no funding source for such services.

In addition, the FY 2014 budget included $200,000 to support a human services and school system planning process to address priority needs for mental health and substance use services for youth. The CSB is one of several Fairfax County government agencies participating in this planning process, under the guidance of the Deputy County Executive for Human Services.


All but one of the reductions in the proposed FY 2014 for the CSB budget were retained in the final budget. The funding reductions for the CSB total $1.8 million and include eliminating 14 CSB positions. (The proposed budget had eliminated 15 positions.) Some of the positions to be eliminated are currently vacant, but some are currently filled. Employees whose positions will be impacted by the FY 2014 budget will be able to retain employment within the CSB in other needed positions.
