As required by the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) Act, CAB is a tripartite board with board members representing three important sectors:
Economically Disadvantaged Sector: Residents representing economically disadvantaged communities throughout San Diego County. This sector consists of five members (and their alternates) nominated by CAB and confirmed by the Board of Supervisors as follows:

Meetings: The Community Action Board holds a minimum of six regular meetings per year. Meetings are subject to the Brown Act and are open to the public.
Next Meeting: Thursday April 8, 2021 from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m. via WebEx
CAB Membership Application: Applications to CAB are retained for two-years to be considered in filling vacancies. When a vacancy occurs, or is about to occur, an ad hoc Nominating Committee is formed by current CAB members to review the applications on file and coordinate interviews with those that best meet the criteria needed for the vacant seat. Applicants selected for consideration are contacted by staff from CAP to schedule an interview with the Nominating Committee. Individuals nominated by CAB must be confirmed by the Board of Supervisors prior to be seated.
