SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — The El Dorado County Community Action Council currently has several member vacancies, including those within the low-income and community sector membership categories.

The Community Action Council is seeking to fill the member vacancies with individuals who can represent the interests and concerns of people and families with low incomes living in El Dorado County, with a special focus on housing, nutrition, and low-income program needs. Priority will be given to individuals or representatives of community organizations that demonstrate a commitment to advancing the purposes and activities of the council.
