Miami-Dade County wants you!

Miami-Dade County is seeking civic minded individuals interested in helping to improve their neighborhoods to serve on Community Advisory Committees


The Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD), in partnership with the Department of Public Housing and Community Development (DPHCD), is seeking qualified individuals interested in being a part of a grassroots approach towards improving communities, as members of the Miami-Dade County’s Community Advisory Committees (CACs).

CACs represent Miami-Dade County’s Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Areas (NRSAs) and Community Service Block Grant (CSBG) Target Areas. CAC members serve in an advisory capacity and provide recommendations to the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on the development and implementation of neighborhood economic and anti-poverty programs and projects.  Members and Officers of the Community Advisory Committee will be elected for a three (3) year term.

Individuals interested in participating must attend the Election Orientation Meeting scheduled for their community. The purpose of these meetings is to explain the voting registration process, candidate qualifications and the election process for the Community Advisory Committees:
