HPS Rural and Remote Advisory Board (RRAB)

Homelessness Partnering Strategy Rural and Remote Advisory Board

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) (Designated Communities or Aboriginal Homelessness Funding Stream) or Regional Advisory Board (RAB) is the local organizing committee responsible for setting direction for addressing homelessness in the community or region.  Although there are several different types of Advisory Boards, every CAB/RAB has certain elements in common.  It encourages partnership building.  It goes beyond simply funding organizations - it is involved in aligning efforts to end and prevent homelessness throughout the community.  It identifies priorities through a planning process, determines which projects should be implemented to address those priorities and reports back to the larger community on the efforts made and results achieved in preventing and reducing homelessness.
