The intent of County Social Services (CSS) is to make funding and service availability more equitable across county lines.

January 1, 2009 five counties came together to further advance the vision of creating a more equitable service system, while retaining the principle of local control. 

Since that time County Social Services is now a consortium of 12 counties:  Allamakee, Black Hawk, Butler, Chickasaw, Clayton, Fayette, Floyd, Grundy, Howard, Mitchell, Tama, and Winneshiek counties.  CSS will serve tax payers and people with disabilities in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
