The City of Austin is seeking community leaders in East Austin who are interested in serving on the Community Development Commission (CDC) and advising City Council when creating programs for low- and moderate-income families, persons with disabilities, and seniors, with an emphasis on federally funded programs.
Supported by Austin Public Health and the Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Departments, the CDC is comprised of members from eight distinct areas of the city and seven additional appointed members. To be eligible, nominees must be 18 years of age or older, live within the geographic area of the commission district, and attend the meetings in person.
Commission candidates can nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else by registering with the City Clerk’s Office or making the nomination during the regional meetings. Members are then elected by those attending the respective regional meetings for terms of two years.
