About the Tripartite Board
In 2007, the Park County Tripartite Board organized as the Yellowstone Country Assistance Network of Park County, Wyoming, a 501 (c) 3 to administer the Park County CSBG grant and offer competitive grants to local organizations and agencies programs for low-income families in Park County & Hot Springs Counties in Wyoming. For our communities to succeed, the community as a whole must be involved and be represented on the Board of Directors.
Standard 5.1 The organization’s governing board is structured in compliance with the CSBG Act:
- At least one third democratically slected representatices of the low-income community;
- One-third local elected officals (or their represenatives) and;
- The remaining members of major groups of interests in the communtiy.
Our current board structure:
- Park County – Elected Offical Powell
- Park County – Elected Offical Cody
- Park County – Low Income Representative
- Park County – Major Groups of Interest
- Big Horn County – Low Income Representative
- Hot Springs County – Low Income Representative
Democratically elected representatives of the low-income community know poverty problems; Representatives of low-income individuals and families in the neighborhood served. No requirement exists the representatives be low-income themselves. The representatives should have a strong voice in the organization’s governance and direction.
Local elected officials (or their representatives) formally represent both the public and the local government; Public Officials or their appointed representatives may serve while they remain in office or until the next annual meeting after leaving office, with no longer than four (4) years term.
