The task force will be looking at issues across North Whatcom because the effects of poverty do not stop at the city limits and a holistic approach is needed to address these issues.
The City accepts applications for boards and commissions year-round, not just when there is a vacancy. If you feel you have something to contribute, please fill out an application and send it to City Clerk Susan Duncan. You can find the application here.
The North Whatcom Poverty Task Force was created by Council action 02/19/19.
The Task Force meets in the City Annex on the first Wednesday of every month from 6pm-7:30pm.
