Housing and Human Services Seeks Applicants for Boards, Commissions

The City of Boulder’s Housing and Human Services Department is seeking applicants to serve on the Human Relations Commission (HRC) and Housing Advisory Board (HAB). Volunteers appointed to serve on a board or commission help City Council examine issues and, in turn, work with elected officials and city staff to shape the future of Boulder.

Applicants should anticipate a time commitment of a three-hour meeting each month, plus time to prepare for meetings and engage with the community on important issues.

The HRC’s purpose is to foster mutual respect and understanding and to create an atmosphere conducive to amicable relations among all members of the Boulder community. This commission distributes Human Relations Fund grants and serves as a quasi-judicial hearing board for Human Rights Ordinance cases.

HAB advises City Council and staff on housing issues, strategies, goals and policies. This board addresses housing affordability, diversity, accessibility, regional housing issues and supports the city’s housing efforts.
