The Community Action Advisory Board (CAAB) is comprised of nine members representing a cross section of the community. Board membership includes low-income citizens, elected public officials, and the private sector.

The Advisory Board conducts a biennial needs assessment and recommends funding for programs and services provided by community-based organizations that meet identified priority needs. The board makes recommendations for funding programs that address essential human needs and programs that move people towards self-sufficiency. Funding sources include the Community Services Block Grant, Deed Recording Fees, Emergency Solutions Grant, Consolidated Housing Grant, and Human Services Fund.

The CAAB meets on the third Tuesday of odd numbered months at 8:00 am at the Center for Community Health C210C.

The CAAB is a tripartite board including elected officials as described: Section 675(c)(3) is amended to require each State to certify as a part of its annual application that: (A) in the case of community action agency (CAA) or nonprofit private organization, each board will be selected by the CAA or nonprofit private organization; (B) in the case of public organization receiving funds, such organization either establish (1) a board which at least one-third of the members or persons chosen in accordance with democratic selection procedures adequate to assure that they are representatives of the poor in the area served; or (2) another mechanism specified by the State to assure low-income citizen participation in the planning, administration and evaluation of projects for which such organization has been funded.
