The Treasure Coast Community Action Agency Advisory Board is charged with the development and oversight of the Community Services Block Grant services which are provided through the Treasure Coast Community Action Agency.  The State of Florida, Department of Economic Opportunity, receives funds from the federal government and distributes them to Community Action Agencies throughout the state.  Three counties (Martin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee) comprise the Treasure Coast Community Action Agency.  The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners is designated as the eligible entity to receive Community Services Block Grant funds for this three-county agency.  Community Services Block Grant program funds are designed to provide a range of services to assist low income people in attaining the skills, knowledge, and motivation necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.  Types of assistance include but not limited to:  transportation assistance, nutrition programs, emergency food and housing, and homeless prevention programs.  The Treasure Coast Community Action Agency's mission is to partner with other human services organizations, the private sector, and citizens to offer programs and services that build self-reliant individuals, families, and communities.
 
The Board is composed of three members from each of the three counties. The representation from each county is as follows:  one elected official, currently holding office or designated representative; one representative of low-income population chosen by a democratic selection procedure adequate to assure that there are representatives of the poor in the area served; one representative of business, industry, labor, religious, welfare, or education interests in the county so specified.
 
Meetings are held quarterly in January, April, July, and October on the third Wednesday at 2:00 pm at the Community Services Office, 437 North 7th Street, Fort Pierce.  Meetings last one to one-and-a-half hours.
