Community Resources, Commissions & Advisory Boards|

The Commission on Community and Family Services advises the City’s leadership on issues of poverty, and the needs of children, youth and their families. It does this by providing guidance on how HCIDLA implements the Community Development Block Grant Program and other funding initiatives; ensure that the community provides input to housing development plans; facilitate an efficient social services delivery system in coordination with government, nonprofit agencies and other stakeholders that would help communities out of poverty, and make policy recommendations.
