Community Action Board

The Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) administers federal Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funds allocated to the City which are specifically designated for delivery of anti-poverty services to highly impoverished communities.

A state mandated advisory body to the Mayor, City Council and HCIDLA on matters related to the development of the City’s anti-poverty strategy and administration of the City's CSBG funds, the Community Action Board (CAB), provides recommendations for the development, planning, implementation, and evaluation of CSBG funds and other programs that serve families living below the poverty line throughout the City.

The CAB presents an opportunity for residents, community based organizations, educational institutions and businesses serving Los Angeles' neighborhoods to actively participate and be involved in resolving the negative impacts of poverty.

Meet Our Board

The Community Action Board has a tripartite structure.  Membership is comprised of representatives from the public (elected officials), individuals currently living in poverty or actively serving that population, and representatives from private sector organizations.
