California's Welfare and Institutions Code Section 12301.3 requires that the Board of Supervisors appoint an In-Home Supportive Service (IHSS) advisory committee. The Board of Supervisors is also the Governing Board for the Public Authority.


The IHSS Advisory Committee is a State mandated and County of Yuba affiliated committee which advises the Public Authority Governing Board regarding IHSS and Public Authority programs that provide care for the elderly and disabled population within Yuba County. 


The IHSS Advisory Committee is composed of up to 11 appointees who serve a two-year term. To qualify for advisory committee membership the candidate must be a Yuba County resident. Also, at least 50% of the appointees must be current or past consumers of in-home personal assistance services and two members must be past or present IHSS care providers.
