NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: The Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is the legislative body of Kitsap County which administers these grant programs. As the legislative body, the BOCC approves the funding wards and the annual CDBG/HOME Action Plan. The BOCC also serves on the Kitsap County Consolidated Housing Authority dba Housing Kitsap Board as provided under state law. Because all three county commissioners sit on the Housing Kitsap board, it is impossible for them to all recuse themselves from approving grant awards. Housing Kitsap submitted applications for the 2024 grant cycle. The BOCC does not receive financial benefit as board members for Housing Kitsap but understand the perceived conflict of interest and therefore appoint citizens to serve on the Grant Recommendation Committee to review Coordinated Grant Applications and make funding recommendations. The BOCC receives the recommendations for consideration and final approval.
