Help make Austin better for Austin

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 by Tai Moses

Austin’s 9 Joint Inclusion Commissions are preparing the Fiscal Year 2022 budget recommendations with the goal of informing city leaders about the programs and services needed in order for the community to flourish. Several boards and commissions are collaborating this year to host three town hall meetings:

  • Public Safety: Tuesday, Feb. 9, 6:30-8 p.m.
  • Health and Environment: Thursday, Feb. 11, 6:30-8 p.m.
  • Economic Opportunity, Culture, and Affordability: Wednesday, Feb. 17, 6:30-8 p.m.

To register for a section, complete a short questionnaire. Zoom links will be sent to you after registration. If you can’t attend a section but still want to give feedback, complete the city’s Age-Friendly Austin Community Survey. Feedback from the survey will be shared with the The Joint Inclusion Commissions: African American Resource Advisory Commission, Asian American Quality of Life Advisory Commission, Commission on Immigrant Affairs, Commission on Seniors, Commission for Women, Hispanic/Latino Quality of Life Resource Advisory Commission, Human Rights Commission, LGBTQIA+ Quality of Life Advisory Commission, and the Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities. For more information, visit Feedback can also be emailed to


This whisper has been expanded to include the 9 Joint Inclusion Commissions, not just the Commission on Seniors.
