Overview

The Community Action Board (CAB) serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Commissioners and the Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED), which is the Community Action Agency for Washtenaw County, on matters pertaining to the causes and consequences of poverty. In addition, CAB acts as an advocate for low-income citizens in promoting institutional and community changes which remove barriers to self-sufficiency.
