HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Holyoke residents can help decide how the city will allocate nearly $1,000,000 in federal funding.

Mayor Alex Morse and the City of Holyoke Office for Community Development are seeking volunteers to serve on the Citizens Advisory Council.

The Citizens Advisory Council is a group of volunteers who provide voices to low and moderate income people and neighborhoods in Holyoke.

The council reviews Community Development Block Grant Proposals and makes funding recommendations to the mayor on behalf of Holyoke’s citizens. Members will also participate in five meetings over the next few months.

Members of the council may be residents, business owners, neighborhood representatives, public housing residents, or service providers working with low and moderate income clients.

The mayor’s office says members of under-represented groups in local government are encouraged to apply.
