Welcome to the Amherst County, VA mobile website. A list of options is available via the button above.

History - Amherst County was formed in 1761, from parts of Albemarle County. The county was named for Sir Jeffrey Amherst, known as the "Conqueror of Canada". Jeffrey Amherst was named Governor of Virginia, although he never came to the colony. Native Americans were the first humans to populate the area. They hunted and fished mainly along the countless rivers and streams in Amherst County. With the establishment of the Virginia Colony in 1607, English emigrants arrived in North America. By the late 1600's English explorers and traders traveled up the James River to our area. Early trading posts formed between 1710 and 1720. By 1730, many new families moved into the land currently known as Amherst County drawn by the desire for land and the good tobacco-growing soil.
 
In 1761, Amherst County was formed from the southern half of Albemarle County. The original county seat had been in Cabelsville, now Colleen in what would later become Nelson County. The county was named for Sir Jeffrey Amherst who commanded the British forces that successfully secured Canada from the French. In 1807 the Amherst County assumed its present proportions when Nelson County was formed from its northern half. At that point, the county seat was moved to the village of Five Oaks, later renamed Amherst. The present county courthouse was built in 1870 and has served the county ever since.
 
In the early days, the major crop raised in Amherst County was tobacco. Apple orchards were part of mixed farming that replaced tobacco, especially in the late 19th century. Timber, mining and milling were also important industries. The introduction of the railroad in the late 19th century greatly influenced the county's growth. Amherst county contains many good examples of 18th, 19th and early 20th century rural and small town architecture. The downtown area of Amherst is a classic example of early 20th century commercial architecture.

Codes protect the public's health, safety and welfare. We all need protection from tragedy due to fire, structural collapse and general deterioration of the structures that surround us: our homes, schools, stores and manufacturing facilities. Building codes provide protection by reducing potential hazards to building occupants.

Codes keep construction costs down. Codes provide uniformity in the construction industry. This uniformity permits builders and materials manufacturers to do business on a larger scale - statewide, regionally or nationally - than if construction was unregulated. Larger scale allows cost savings which are ultimately passed on to the consumer.

Codes provide consistent standards in construction. Codes establish predictable and consistent minimum standards which are applied to the quality and durability of construction materials.

Codes contribute to the well-being of the community. The preservation of life and safety as well as the maintenance of property values over time are a direct result of the application and enforcement of building codes.

WHAT IS THE COMPREHENSIVE SERVICES ACT FOR AT RISK YOUTH AND FAMILIES (CSA)?

It is a 1993 Virginia Law that provided 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 the act is to provide high quality, child centered, family focused, cost effective, community-based services to high-risk youth and their families.

HOW DID IT GET STARTED?

In 1989, the General Assembly became concerned because the cost of providing residential treatment to high-risk youth was increasing at approximately 22% each year. Because of this, a study of children in residential care was conducted. Fourteen thousand records from four different state agencies were examined. Subsequent analysis showed that services were provided to only 4,993 individual children.

In addition, 9 out of 10 of these children returned to their home communities where necessary changes in the child's community environment had not been made. The progress achieved in the residential facility was often lost.

At that point, it was decided that high quality, less restrictive, community-based services would be provided to these children if the funds were managed at the local level. There is a local cash match required to access the state CSA funds.

WHICH FUNDING STREAMS WERE PLACED IN THE FUNDS POOL?

* Department of Social Services
State and Local Foster Care
Foster Care Purchased Services

* Department of Juvenile Justice
286 Special Placements
239 Special Placements

* Department of Education
Private Tuition
Interagency Assistance

* Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services
Purchased Beds for Adolescents

* Other
Interagency Consortium

WHO MANAGES THE MONEY AT THE LOCAL LEVEL?

Each locality is required to have at least two different interagency teams. They are the Community Policy and Management Team and Family Assessment and Planning Team.

WHO PARTICIPATES ON THE LOCAL TEAMS?

The Community Policy and Management Team (CPMT) is made up of at least one elected or appointed official or his designee and the agency heads or their designees from the local Department of Social Services, School System, Community Services Board (mental health), Court Services Unit (juvenile justice), local Health Department, a parent and, where appropriate, a private provider. This team has administrative and fiscal responsibility for the local funds pool, for developing local policies and procedures and appointing members of the Family Assessment and Planning Team.

The Family Assessment and Planning Team (FAPT) is comprised of the supervisory level staff from the same agencies as the CPMT as well as the parent and often a private provider. These teams work with the families to develop the Individual Family Services Plan (IFSP).

If the services needed are beyond what is available in the participating agencies and there are no other family or community resources available, the team may choose to purchase them with local CSA pool funds

WHICH CHILDREN MAY BE SERVED BY THE TEAMS?

In general, the children who would have been served by one of the funding streams placed in the pool are targeted for services through CSA. The children who would have been served by the education funds and/or the foster care funds placed in the pool are considered "mandated" for service. This is because there is "sum sufficient" language attached to them in the Federal law and/or the Code of Virginia. These special education and foster care children are the only populations state and local governments are required to appropriate sufficient funds to serve.

ARE THESE THE ONLY CHILDREN WHO MAY BE SERVED?

No! If funds are available, localities may choose to serve other children with emotional or behavioral problems, especially those with multi agency involvement. Parents may be required to contribute financially toward the cost of CSA-funded services.

HOW DO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES ACCESS THE TEAMS?

Each locality develops its own policies and procedures governing how families access the teams. Some localities allow parents to self refer, some allow any local agency to bring a case and many require that one of the agencies who serve on the team be the point of contact for the family. In order to find the requirements in your locality you may call any of the members of your CPMT. To find the name and number of the CPMT Chairperson or CSA Coordinator for your area, click on Local Contacts to download this information.
