Are these the only children who may be served?
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.

In the City of Roanoke, "non-mandated" funds are available to some children and families served by the Community Services Board (Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare), Court Services Unit, Roanoke City Public Schools and the local Department of Social Services. These funds are limited, and the City of Roanoke is not required to appropriate funds to serve this population.
