CAAAB Seeking Nominations for Representative of Low-Income Community

CAAAB Seeking Nominations for Representative of Low-Income Community

CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. (July 9, 2024) — The Charlotte County Community Action Agency Advisory Board, an advisory board to the County Commission, is seeking nominations for two representatives from the low-income community to serve on the board. At its July 18 meeting, nominations will be accepted from county residents in attendance. The candidate will be selected by ballots submitted by meeting attendees.

Eligible candidates must be a resident of Charlotte County, preferably from one of the following ZIP codes: 34223, 33950, 33980, 33953 or 33952. Nominees must agree to commit to attending a minimum of four meetings per year as well as participate on at least one committee. Nominees do not have to be low-income themselves, however, must have an expressed interest in serving on behalf of low-income residents.

This election process is required by the Community Services Block Grant Act as a measure to ensure that one-third of the tri-partite board be a direct representative of the low-income community served through community action programs. The public is encouraged to attend. The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the Punta Gorda Housing Authority, 340 Gulf Breeze Ave., Punta Gorda, FL 33950.
