Snohomish County seeks residents to serve on the Advisory Committee for Affordable Housing and Community Development
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.
Representatives from the following groups are needed:
• Two low-income individuals
• Two individuals with disabilities
• Two senior citizens
• Two individuals of racial/ethnic minority
Low-income is defined as follows:
Household Size 1 2 3 4 5 6
Annual Income $46,100 $52,650 $59,250 $65,800 $71,100 $76,350
These eight volunteer positions provide an opportunity for residents to be involved in the local government process to award funds for projects that improve the lives of low-income residents in our community. Project funding is provided through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development programs 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 submit an application to the address below with information on their representative group as described above, areas of experience, and reasons for wanting to serve. Current and previous committee members may apply for reappointment.
