Our Board

RCAA Board of Directors

Redwood Community Action Agency policies and overall direction are determined by a tripartite Board of Directors. The Board members are representatives of low-income Humboldt County residents, the public sector, and the private sector. The Board conducts much of its business through two regular committees:

Executive Committee
Finance Committee

The Board usually meets on the third Thursday of every month at 5:00 p.m. The meetings are either held at: Redwood Community Action Agency, 904 G Street, Eureka or online via ZOOM. Board meetings are open to the public and all community members are encouraged to attend. Call ahead (707) 269-2001 for exact meeting date and location.

How do RCAA's programs affect you?

  • Natural Resources Services (NRS) works directly with Humboldt County community leaders, schools and parents to improve safety and encourage more children to safely walk and bicycle to school. NRS helps coordinate both the Greater Eureka and Humboldt County Safe Routes to School Task Forces.
  • The TOOTH program: igniting healthy smiles and lifelong dental wisdom in young minds!
  • The Natural Resources Services works with community members, civic groups, and local jurisdictions to enhance neighborhood street tree planting and support the development of community forests for public access and watershed protection.
  • The Energy & Environmental Services Division provides much needed help to our low-income and elderly community members. The program helps to pay their energy costs, to make their homes warm and cozy, and improve their health by weatherizing their homes against inclement weather.
