History, Governance, and Advisement
As such, Community Services is overseen by two separate statutory governing bodies. The five-member Coconino County Board of Supervisors is our final authority, governing all policies and budgets, while the Community Action Advisory Board (CAAB) advises programming and services. The CAAB has twelve to fifteen members, locally comprised of one-third elected officials (or their representatives), one-third or more lower-income residents potentially eligible to be consumers of our services, and one-third or less private sector representatives. CAAB members are selected by the other members, with the exception of the elected official seats appointed by a County Supervisor.
Assessing Need and Funding Community ActionForms and Resources Webpage.
Funding for Community Services' Community Action comes from federal, state, and local government, foundation grants and business and individual donations. Coconino County Community Services is a public non-profit and your tax-deductible financial contributions are an investment in community and a better future for generations to come. Your contributions fight homelessness - helping families and individuals from sleeping on the street; fight hunger - providing seniors with hot, nutritious meals and homecare assistance; fight oppression - providing oversight of personal funds for court-recognized disabled individuals who have no one else to care for them; and promote self-sustainability – leveraging and matching recipient and federal dollars for Individual Development Accounts assisting post-secondary education and micro-business start-up and/or expansion.
Lower Your Tax, Help Our Community!
As a CAA, Community Services qualifies for Charitable Tax Credit Contributions. Per the Arizona State Department of Revenue, Community Services (QCO Code 20523) is on the approved list of All Qualifying Charitable Organizations. Community Services is also a member of the Flagstaff Tax Credit Coalition. Thanks to YOU, we are helping more families in need.
