Board Description


The Review and Comment Commission's name was changed by Ordinance 16-021 to the Citizens Advisory Commission for Community Grants.  
 
This Commission consists of five Commissioners and not less than 20 nor more than 30 persons appointed by said Commissioners. Purpose: The Citizen's Advisory Commission for Community Grants shall consist of an appropriate number of subcommittees as determined by the Citizen's Advisory Commission Chair, but no fewer than three subcommittees, which shall review the funding requests of local human services agencies and comment on those requests to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. The purpose of each subcommittee is to review an agency's request proposal, meet with representatives of the agency, vote on a recommended funding level, suggest conditions to be met by the agency receiving the funds, and report its findings to the Commission as a whole. The Citizen's Advisory Commission for Community Grants will later forward its final recommendations to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. Three Commissioners shall be Nashua citizens representing a cross section of the community. They shall be appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Board of Aldermen.
