Board of Directors

TAP’s governing body is its board of directors. It has a tripartite structure—which requires the involvement of representatives of those we serve, elected officials, and the private sector—to ensure it is made up of diverse, engaged, local community members.

The composition of the board of directors is as follows:

  • Low-Income Individuals and Families: A minimum of one-third of the tripartite board; must be democratically selected.
  • Elected Officials or Their Representatives: One-third must be elected officials, holding office at their time of selection, or their representatives.
  • Major Groups and Interests in the Community Served
