The San Mateo Office of Community Affairs

The San Mateo Office of Community Affairs

Our services and projects are all designed with one thing in mind - those who live in our community. Through our civic engagement, we make sure we capture your voice to understand how to inform their strategies.  Community Affairs is a division of the County Executive's Office, serving as a liaison between County departments and the community to facilitate information sharing, feedback, provide immigrant services to residents. Whether that’s through public art and beautification projects, immigrant integration support, Census 2020 and community engagement / meetings, we make sure that our residents have the information and resources to understand the latest initiatives from our office and an opportunity to provide input.
