Community Action Advisory Board (CAAB)
Purpose and History
As a Community Action Agency (CAA), Coconino County Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is federally required to have a Community Action Advisory Board (CAAB). CAAB serves the County's lower-income residents by advising CCHHS' anti-poverty plans, projects, programs, and services. CAAB compiles and reviews data regarding unmet needs, service gaps, the best way to address these, and by assisting coordination of community asset delivery. Community members eligible to be consumers of CCHHS' programs and services are also potentially eligible to become Consumer Sector representative CAAB members who are intentionally involved in the decision-making process for CCHHS program and service advisement.
Starting in 1966 at least one-third of the CAAB had to be representatives of the poor, and in 1967 the CAAB was required to be tripartite in make-up. Since 1981 CAAs have been funded by the Community Services Block Grant through their States per Public Law 97-35 and 105-285.
CAAB is tripartite with 12 to 15 members: one-third from the Public Sector, one-third or more Consumer Sector Representatives, and one-third or less Private Sector members, further defined as follows:
- Public Sector includes local elected or appointed public officials or their designees,
- Consumer Sector includes democratically selected County residents eligible to be CCHHS program or service consumers, and
- Private Sector includes individuals who represent local community, non-profit, or business interests.
Overall membership shall aim for broad-based community representation. CAAB members' terms-or-service shall be for two years. Members may be re-elected without a limit on the number of consecutive terms.
