Applications are being sought for three vacancies on the Clatsop County Commission on Children and Families. The commission is charged by state law with promoting the well-being of children and families by assessing needs, developing a plan to meet those needs and assisting in meeting the needs through resource allocation and collaboration with other agencies.
The commission manages state and federal funds that are allocated to local programs and projects based on priorities and strategies established during a community planning process and identified in the commission's comprehensive plan. It also monitors programs that receive funds.
The term of one of the vacant positions ends Feb. 28. The terms of the two other seats run to Feb. 28, 2011.
