Snohomish County is recruiting residents to serve on a Technical Advisory Committee to review applications for projects that benefit low-income individuals and neighborhoods in our community through affordable housing and community development programs.
Representatives from the following groups are needed:
-Two low-income individuals
-Two individuals living with disabilities
-Two individuals 62 years of age or older
-Two BIPOC individuals
Low-income is defined as follows:
These volunteer positions offer residents a unique opportunity to actively participate in the local government process, enabling them to propose funding for projects dedicated to enhancing the lives of low-income individuals in Snohomish County. Project funding is provided through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and may be used for affordable housing, public services, and improvements to facilities and infrastructure such as food banks, senior centers, sidewalks, and water/sewer systems.
Volunteers are appointed to a three-year term and meet two to three times each year in late fall or early winter. Committee members review application materials outside of the meetings and meet to evaluate projects and recommend funding awards.
Interested individuals are asked to complete a short application with information on their representative group, areas of experience, and reasons for wanting to serve.
Applications must be received by Dec. 6, 2023.
