Every community board in NYC should include a member of the veteran community to reflect the needs of their peers. This is your opportunity to make your voice heard. Apply to join your local community board today.
Veterans who do not wish to apply as community board members can serve as a public member. Public members are not voting members of the community board; however, they may serve on community board subcommittees.
