Interested in supporting the community you live in? Want to ensure economic recovery and housing stability for all residents? Concerned about your most vulnerable neighbors?
The Community and Support Services Advisory Council (CSSAC) is a 15-member citizen body that reviews applications and makes recommendations for grant funds available to agencies that provide social services to Salt Lake County residents. Local volunteers are needed to fill multiple current vacancies before the end of January 2021.
The funds reviewed by the advisory council support programs addressing:
- Domestic Violence
- Homeless Prevention
- Refugee Resettlement
- Job Training Services
In 2020, CSSAC made recommendations providing more than $3 million to agencies providing those critical services to county residents.
If you're interested in serving in this capacity during 2021-22, apply at slco.org/boards.
- Be able to attend weekly meetings from late January through mid-March
- Attend meetings remotely in 2021
- Provide a resume and any relevant experience
Grant funds the advisory council recommends come from general funds, federal funding from the Social Services Block Grant, Community Development Block Grant, and Emergency Solutions Grant.
The CSSAC's formal and technical responsibilities can be found outlined in its operating procedures.
