Palmetto Community Action

Board of Directors

Since 1968, local Community Action Agencies have been required to have tripartite governing boards to gain and retain designation as eligible entities and to receive CSBG funding. Effective tripartite boards reflect and promote the unique anti-poverty leadership, action, and mobilization responsibilities assigned by law to CAAs. Boards are responsible for assuring that agencies continue to assess and respond to the causes and conditions of poverty in their community, achieve anticipated family and community outcomes, and remain administratively and fiscally sound.

The Palmetto CAP Board of Directors is made of 1/3 publicly-elected officials, 1/3 private business representatives and 1/3 members of the economically disadvantaged community (who are elected by a democratic process).  Board members also represent the three counties Palmetto CAP serves.
