Volusia County Community Assistance will conduct five public meetings where community members will elect one person at each meeting to represent low-income people in that area on the Human Services Advisory Board. This is a requirement per grant regulations. Each meeting will consist of an overview of human services, roles and responsibilities of an advisory board member, and an election of a person to represent the low-income population. An alternate may also be elected to serve in the absence of the elected person if enough interest is warranted at each meeting.
The meetings will be held at these times and locations:
Residents may also participate in the meeting virtually. The link will be posted on this page the morning of each meeting. Please contact the the Human Services Manager Clayton Jackson at 386-736-5956 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please contact the manager for minutes prior to the most recently completed fiscal year.
The CSBG Reauthorization Act of 1998 requires that the CSBG program be administered through a tripartite board. The Human Services Advisory Board (HSAB) is the designated board that must fully participate in the development, planning, implementation and evaluation of the program to serve low-income communities.
The board is constituted to ensure that one-third of the members are elected public officials; at least one-third are chosen in accordance with democratic selection procedures adequate to ensure that these members are representatives of low-income individuals and families in the neighborhood served; and the remainder of the members are officials or members of business, industry, labor, religious organizations, law enforcement, education, or other major groups and interests in the community served.
