The County is taking a number of actions to keep residents safe and minimize the spread of COVID-19. Find status information.

The mission of the Local Management Board (LMB) is to foster the efficient delivery of government and private resources by developing an interagency system of care that addresses the wellbeing of children, youth and families in Baltimore County.

To achieve this mission, the Local Management Board will pursue the following strategies:

  • Identify and prioritize critical issues affecting children, youth and families in Baltimore County
  • Select evidence-based and best practice programs to address prioritized issues
  • Develop the financial resources to create and sustain selected programs
  • Build an interagency service delivery system to support program implementation
  • Provide ongoing program management and evaluation to ensure positive outcomes for Baltimore County children and families

Background

Pursuant to the Human Services Article § 8-301 of the Annotated Code of Maryland and an Executive Order (PDF) signed by County Executive James T. Smith Jr. on June 28, 2005, the primary responsibility of the County's Local Management Board is to ensure the implementation of a local interagency service delivery system for children, youth and families. This interagency service system provides a continuum of care that is child, youth and family oriented, emphasizes prevention, early intervention and community based-services and gives priority to children, youth and families most at risk.

The County Executive appoints members to the Local Management Board (LMB) that represent both public and private interests and possess expertise on child, youth, and family-related issues. The LMB utilizes a Results-Based Accountability model in establishing and prioritizing efforts to improve child well-being in the jurisdiction. Specifically, decisions are made in the context of:

  • What we are trying to accomplish
  • What the data tells us
  • What partners we need
  • What the critical strategies are

By consistently posing these questions, the LMB and its partners will assure that resources are directed to areas of need.

Responsibilities

The responsibilities of the County's LMB include, but are not limited to:

  • Planning—Develop plans for enhancing services to children, youth and families, with particular attention to opportunities for effective inter-agency and public and private collaborations.
  • Fiscal oversight and resource allocation—Oversee the expenditure of funds for programs under the Board's jurisdiction; develop, execute and monitor for compliance with contracts, grant agreements and Memorandum of Understanding (MOUs) with sub-recipients; seek resources from state, federal and other sources to support services to children and families.
  • Evaluation and data collection—Collect and analyze data as needed to carry out the Board's responsibilities for planning, coordination and delivery of services; evaluate the success of Board and inter-agency efforts, including the extent to which targeted populations are being effectively served.
  • Training and communication—Provide and coordinate training opportunities for public and private agencies to help improve the delivery of important services to children and families; plan and implement communication strategies to improve access to services for all children and families.
  • Reporting—Prepare progress reports as required by funding providers.
