The 2016 Application for Community Board Membership Is Now Open

Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer’s office is accepting applications for Community Board membership. All eligible New Yorkers living, working, or studying in the borough of Manhattan are encouraged to consider applying.

Manhattan’s 12 community boards are local organizations each composed of 50 volunteer members serving staggered two-year terms.  Community boards are tasked with being the independent and representative voices of their communities—the most grass-roots form of local government. The boards are pivotal in shaping their communities and work to enhance and preserve the character of the city’s many unique neighborhoods.

Please note: It is advisable that you prepare your answers in advance, as this application must be completed in one sitting. You can also download a copy of the application to print and fill out by hand. Mailing instructions are included in the application.

Community Board 2016 Application

Applications and resumes must be submitted before 5:00 PM on Friday, January 29, 2016. After submitting, you will be contacted regarding the next steps in the screening and interview process. All applicants are required to complete the entire process, from submitting an application to participating in the group interviews.

For more information about Manhattan’s 12 Community Boards, visit our Community Board webpage or email Paola Liriano at with any questions you may have.
