These amounts comprise all local DSS expenditures reported and reimbursed through the Locality Automated System for Expenditure Reimbursement (LASER), a VDSS financial management system. The majority of these funds are for administrative expenses, chiefly staff.
Expenditures are categorized by funding source: federal, state, local match for federal and state funds, and local only (expenditures beyond the required local match and, therefore, non-reimbursed).
The majority of social services spending, however, does not flow through local departments of social services and so is not included in the table below. Benefits for Medicaid, FAMIS, SNAP, TANF, Energy Assistance, and Child Care (as of SFY13) flow directly to providers or clients, not through local departments. These benefits totaled more than $9 billion in SFY 2016.
