Clark County Resident Council

Clark County Resident Council (CCRC) is a voice for residents of VHA subsidized housing. The Council also serves as an advisory board to the VHA. The Council is a recognized 501(c)(3) organization and sponsors activities and grants that benefit residents.

Established in 1993, the CCRC’s mission is to build community pride and responsibility through improved safety, services, and property improvements. It is a grass roots organization composed, created, and managed by residents.

What does this mean to me?

Each adult resident listed on your public housing lease is a general member of the Clark County Resident Council. General members have voting privileges and may be elected as officers.

When does the Council meet?

The Clark County Resident Council holds quarterly meetings the second Tuesday of February, May, August, and November. The meetings begin at 12:00 Noon at the RISE & STARS Community Center, 500 Omaha Way. The meetings are a chance to hear committee reports, address resident issues, and support individual resident concerns. The meetings may include a speaker. Resident Council meetings are also a time for social interaction and fun. Please join us at a meeting!

The CCRC supports the Christmas Project, the Block Party, the Skyline Park Party and other RISE & STARS Community Center activities and programs.

Resident Advisory Board

The Resident Advisory Board (RAB) serves to represent the views and concerns of VHA residents. Established in 2008, the Resident Advisory Board (RAB) is one of the ways the VHA gets input about policies and procedures that affect residents. This input helps ensure that policies are balanced and serve the needs and interests of residents, the VHA, and the community.

What does this mean to me?

All residents 18 years of age on the lease in a VHA owned/managed complex or a participant in the VHA Section 8 program are eligible to become members of the Resident Advisory Board; officer elections are held annually.

Quarterly Meetings

The RAB meets quarterly and as needed. For meeting location, dates and times please contact Steve Towell at (360) 993-9563. Meetings are open to the public.
