PITTSFIELD, Mass. (NEWS10) – The City of Pittsfield, through its Human Services Advisory Council (HSAC), is asking the public to comment on the human service needs in Pittsfield. The HSAC is an 11-member advisory committee that provides funding recommendations to the mayor on how the city should divide its human services funding.
One of the considerations the council uses in formulating those recommendations is public input, both from Pittsfield residents and members of surrounding communities. Funding is based on the fiscal year, running July 1 to June 30.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) is released in November of each year and is due the first week of January. Applications can be obtained during this time frame at the Pittsfield Dept. of Community Development at Pittsfield City Hall or by email request to email@example.com once the RFP has been released.
Public comments will be accepted from now until January 31, and may be submitted by contacting the above email or by calling (413) 499-9358. For more information, visit the Community Development page on the city’s website.
