Ways To Get Involved

Volunteers Needed - Lee County

Posted by: Jennifer S. Sexton On January 23, 2015 13:18

The Lee County Community Action/Neighborhood District Committee Advisory Board is an advisory board to the Lee County Board of County Commissioners (BoCC). They participate in planning, program performance evaluation and guidance on programs impacting the lives of low-income and at-risk residents of Lee County. While final authority rests with the BoCC, the CAA/NDC provides valuable input on the Community Services Block Grant Action Plan, the HUD Consolidated Plan and Neighborhood District funding. Membership of the committee is composed of 15 members representing public officials, private sector, and representatives of low-income persons in Lee County’s designated targeted service areas. Low-income residents are elected by their neighborhood associations in Charleston Park, Pine Manor, Page Park, Palmona, and Suncoast. The remaining 10 are appointed by Lee County Commissioners. There are currently at large vacancies on the CAA/NDC. Questions regarding applications or the Board should be directed to Kim Hustad at 239-533-7916 or e-mail khustad@leegov.com. Kim forwards completed applications to the appropriate County Commissioner for consideration and appointment. Regular meetings of the CAA/NDC are generally held quarterly during evening hours. Meetings typically last 1.5 hours and the public is invited to attend. The Committee may meet more often if the need arises. Standard Roberts Rules of Order govern the proceedings of all meetings.
