Yolo County seeks nominations for Community Services Action Board – Daily Democrat

The Community Services Action Board, an advisory body to the Yolo County Board of Supervisors, is inviting nominations for seven positions.

The Community Services Action Board (CSAB) fights poverty by promoting the health, safety, stability and independence of low-income people in Yolo County, according to a county news release.

The board currently has vacancies for five low-income population representatives, who can either be low-income people or people working for an organization serving low-income people, with one District 3 representative to be nominated by Supervisor Gary Sandy and a representative from District 4 to be nominated by Supervisor Jim Provenza.

CSAB’s functions include conducting semi-annual community needs assessments to identify critical gaps in the county’s social service system, overseeing service delivery using block service grant funds by reviewing project proposals and making recommendations to the board on expenditures and by monitoring the performance of grant-funded programs by reviewing results reports and conducting annual site visits.

The CSAB meets on the second Tuesday of every other month, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. The Supervisory Board district map is available by clicking https://bit.ly/33HwhXc. For more information about CASB, email Anisa Vallejo at: [email protected]
