The Pierce County Department of Community Connections is seeking citizen members to serve on an advisory board that makes funding recommendations for community development grants.
Members of the Pierce County Citizens’ Advisory Board help reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness through Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) public service and capital projects.
Advisory board members determine community needs, review plans and reports, prioritize program activities, evaluate funding applications, and make funding recommendations to the Community Connections director. Applicants should have an interest in or experience with social service programs or community development activities. While not a requirement, individuals with experience in planning, design, or construction of capital projects or public infrastructure are encouraged to apply.
The board meets on a bi-monthly basis, usually on the first Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m.
If you are interested in volunteering, you may obtain a copy of the application from Pierce County Community Connections website or by contacting Stephanie Bray at (253) 798-6917or firstname.lastname@example.org.
