County Exec Seeks to Fill Vacancies on Community Development Advisory Committee

September 3, 2014

County Executive Isiah Leggett is seeking applicants to fill 10 positions on the Community Development Advisory Committee, which assists the Department of Housing and Community Affairs in reviewing requests for funds for the ongoing Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program.

   Criteria for appointment include familiarity with problems of a low-income neighborhood or special needs populations within the County.  Individuals with demonstrated leadership abilities are encouraged to apply. Committee members generally focus on funding requests in support of public services.

   The committee makes recommendations to the County Executive on the proposed use of these funds, and holds public hearings required by federal law to ascertain community development needs and citizen input. Federal funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by local governments are for projects to benefit homeless individuals, as well as, low and moderate income persons.  Funds can be used to revitalize neighborhoods and make public improvements in low and moderate income communities as well as create housing opportunities for homeless persons and low and moderate income persons.

   Members serve three-year terms without compensation, but are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Meetings are held one evening a month, with additional weekly meetings between mid-October and mid-December. Representatives of all minority populations, as well as elderly, physically and mentally disabled citizens, and residents of low-income urban and rural areas are encouraged to apply. Individuals who are homeless or formerly homeless are particularly encouraged to apply.

   An application, consisting of a brief cover letter and resume, should be sent by mail to County Executive Isiah Leggett, 101 Monroe Street, 2nd Floor, Rockville, MD  20850, or by email to countyexecutive.boards@montgomerycountymd.gov. Home and employment addresses, as well as contact phone numbers and email addresses should be included. The deadline for application is September 23, 2014.

   Members of County boards, committees and commissions may not serve on more than one such group at a time. Members of these boards are eligible for reimbursement for travel and dependent care for meetings attended. Leggett’s appointments are generally subject to confirmation by the County Council. Applications of individuals selected for appointment to groups that are confirmed by the Council are made public as part of the confirmation process.
