Community Action Advisory Board
|Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months at 8 am in the Center for Community Health, 1601 E. Fourth Plain Blvd., Room C210C, Vancouver.|
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 officials, and the private sector.
The advisory board conducts a biennial needs assessment to inform recommendations for funding programs and services that address essential human needs and promote self-sufficiency provided by community-based organizations.
The CAAB meets at 8:00 a.m. on the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months at the Center for Community Health, Room C210C, 1601 E Fourth Plain Boulevard, Vancouver, and other times as needed.
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.
