Local committee allocates federal funds for low-income programs
Marysville youth interested in helping decide how federal block grant funds are used locally to help low-moderate income populations are invited to apply to serve on a city advisory committee. Deadline to apply is June 30.
Community Development Block Grants are federal funds intended to help local low-moderate income communities provide affordable housing, anti-poverty programs and infrastructure development. Applications are open for high school youth interested in serving on its CDBG Citizen Advisory Committee, which helps determine how those funds are best spent in Marysville.
The committee evaluates proposals, recommends funding and reviews program performance within the frameworks of a consolidated plan and annual action plan. The vacancy is for a one-year term ending in July 2023, with the possibility for two additional one-year terms. Applicants must be of high school age and live within Marysville city limits.
To apply, please send a letter of interest by June 30, 2022, to Amy Hess, Senior Planner, 80 Columbia Ave., Marysville WA 98270 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Appointments are recommended by Mayor Jon Nehring and confirmed by the City Council. Committee meetings are open to the public.
