For Immediate ReleaseJuly 20, 2021
San Rafael, CA – There are two term expirations on the Marin Housing Authority Board of Commissioners, and the appointing authority is the Marin County Board of Supervisors. The application deadline is 5 p.m. August 13.
Applicants must be a tenant or a voucher holder of the Marin Housing Authority. The Board of Commissioners makes policies and decisions that affect public housing and the numerous other programs administered by the authority. The Housing Authority Commission consists of seven members – the five members of the Board of Supervisors plus two public housing tenants. Marin Housing operates programs in the incorporated areas of Marin under cooperation agreements with local towns and cities.
Marin Housing is a public corporation authorized to provide decent, safe and sanitary housing for low- and moderate-income residents. It is empowered to acquire property, develop housing, issue tax-exempt bonds, enter into mortgages, trust indentures, author leases, condemn property, borrow money, accept grants, and manage property. Marin Housing is separate and distinct from the County of Marin government, the federal government, and from other county and state agencies – much like a special district.
