Community Involvement


The Western Arizona Council of Governments Human Services Department integrates a strong grass roots community involvement effort into its planning and advisory processes. The Advisory Boards, and the planning network they are a part of, strive to bring the needs of the low-income families together with the social services provided. This planning process is of vital importance in achieving some realistic goals to assist those individuals and families reach economic self-sufficiency.

Currently, Western Arizona Council of Governments maintains:

  1. One (1) Region IV Board

    • Community Action Board (CAB)
  2. Three (3) County Advisory Councils

    • La Paz County Advisory Council (LPCAC)
    • Mohave County Advisory Council (MCAC)
    • Yuma County Advisory Council (YCAC)

      ( The Regional Board and Advisory Councils are tri-partite boards: one-third of the seats are designated for Public/Elected Officials, one-third of the seats are designated for Private/Community Representation, and one-third of the seats are designated for low- income representation.)

Utilizing the aforementioned board structure, the WACOG Human Services Department attempts to direct the focus and attention of the department based upon community input. This board structure is also utilized to plan "Locally Planned Social Service Block Grant Funds."
