Applicants sought for the Human Services Commission


The Tacoma City Council is currently seeking applicants to fill five positions on the Human Services Commission (HSC); four member positions and one youth position for an individual between the ages of 16 and 18.


The Commission consists of 15 members who are interviewed and recommended by the Community Vitality and Safety Committee and appointed by the City Council.


The HSC conducts public hearings, accepts and reviews funding applications, rates project applications, and makes human services funding recommendations to the City Council.


The City is committed to creating an equitable and anti-racist community and wants our committees, boards, and commissions to reflect our diverse community. For these vacancies, Black and Indigenous community members, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with disabilities, seniors, youth, immigrants, and refugees, as well as individuals who have benefited from programs such as homelessness or household stability programs, youth development, domestic violence services or mental health and substance use disorders programs are strongly encouraged to apply.


Additional information on the Human Services Commission is available here.


Applications must be submitted to the City Clerk’s Office by the end of day Sunday, March 28, 2021. To apply, please visit cityoftacoma.org/cbcapplication.
