Children's Services Act
What is CSA?
The Children's Services Act (CSA) is now the name for a law enacted in 1993 that establishes a single state pool of funds to purchase services for at- risk youth and their families. The state funds, combined with local community funds, are managed by local interagency teams who plan and oversee services to youth.
