About the Citizens Advisory Board

Formed by two separate committees, the Citizen’s Advisory Board promotes citizen participation and guiding funding recommendations for federal, state and municipal dollars allocated to community organizations. The board oversees the funding recommendations for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) dollars from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HOME Program funds received from the City’s involvement as a participating agency of the Snohomish County Consortium, Affordable Housing Trust Fund (AHTF) dollars, and City of Everett Human Needs funds. This board is also responsible for implementing and overseeing Everett’s five-year Consolidated Plan and one-year Annual Action Plan, which are required to receive funding from HUD.

The board holds a public hearing in late summer each year to gather information regarding the housing and community development needs of low and moderate-income people who live in Everett. The board sends a request for proposals following the hearing, holds an open application round, and sets funding recommendations in public hearings. The funding recommendations set the projects for the Annual Action Plan and upcoming funding program years. After a 30-day comment period, the board sends the recommendations to the City Council for approval. For federal dollars, once the recommendation has been approved by Council, the Action Plan is submitted to HUD.
