The mission of the Citizen Participation Advisory Board is to submit recommendations to City Council on allocations for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
The role of the CPAB is to review applications submitted by eligible organizations seeking funding from the City's annual allocation of CDBG funding, and then recommend groups with associated funding levels to City Council. The CPAB strives to represent the diverse views on the socioeconomic issues related to low/moderate income individuals and, thus, representation by low/moderate income and minority groups is encouraged.
The Board annually holds two public hearings to obtain citizen input various community needs related to the program and hears presentations from each eligible applicant. CPAB recommendations for CDBG funding are submitted to City Council for approval at a public hearing during a City Council meeting, typically held in the month of April.
