VANCOUVER – The city of Vancouver is seeking a volunteer with an interest in affordable, accessible housing to fill a vacancy on the Vancouver Housing Authority (VHA) Board of Commissioners. Applications must be submitted by February 5.

The six-member volunteer board is appointed by the mayor to establish policy for the operation of VHA’s low-income rental housing assistance programs and properties in Clark County.  Commissioners play a critical role in fulfilling VHA’s mission to provide opportunities to people who experience barriers to housing because of income, disability or special needs.

Regular VHA board meetings are held from 10 a.m. to noon on the fourth Thursday of the month, with preceding executive sessions often starting at 9 a.m. Meetings are typically held either online or at the VHA office at 2500 Main St. in Vancouver. Occasionally, the chair of the board calls special meetings and work sessions with 48 hours advance notice. Commissioners can call in to meetings if necessary.

State law requires that applicants not be landlords with rental assistance contracts or a vendor, individual or developer currently doing business with the VHA. Applicants must also be available for interviews with Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle at a date to be determined.

This position is currently held by an individual whose term is expiring but may reapply to retain the position. Per Vancouver City Council policy, all incumbents who wish to reapply for their positions will be re-interviewed along with any qualifying applicants.

Applicants not appointed through this process may be considered for future VHA vacancies for up to one year from the date of their application submission. 

Applications can be submitted online at www.city of vancouver.us./boards. To request a paper application or additional information, contact the city’s Boards and Commissions Coordinator at Vancouver City Hall, P.O. Box 1995, Vancouver, WA 98668-1995, bc_coordinator@cityofvancouver.us or (360) 487-8600.
