Applications Now Open for the Measure W - Working Group on Fund Expenditures for Community Housing

The Marin County Community Development Agency (CDA) seeks applications from those that live or work in West Marin to participate on the Measure W Working Group on Fund Expenditures for Community Housing (Working Group). The purpose of the Working Group is to identify housing needs in West Marin, such as rental support, new construction, and housing for persons with disabilities which will receive Measure W funds. The Board of Supervisors and County staff will consider the group recommendations when awarding funds to specific projects using Measure W proceeds.

Background: On November 6, 2018, the voters of West Marin passed Measure W to establish the West Marin Transient Occupancy Tax area. In recognition of the impacts of visitors to the area, the increase in the transient occupancy tax approved by the measure will provide increased funding for enhanced fire/emergency services and long-term community housing. The CDA will administer the Measure W community housing funds. The measure allows for an ad-hoc working group to help inform CDA’s recommendations to the Marin County Board of Supervisors. The Working Group will be comprised of no more than seven (7) members as selected by the CDA Director.

The deadline to submit a completed application is no later than 5:00 PM on May 28, 2019. Applications can be submitted to Leelee Thomas or mailed to:
