The Grants Advisory Commission is composed of seven members appointed by the Roseville City Council for overlapping four-year terms.

All commission members must reside in the City of Roseville and must be 18 years or older. The youth commissioner seat is an ex-officio member (non-voting) and must be between 13 and 18 years old and a Roseville resident.

The commission meets the second Tuesday of every month and annual reviews all proposals and grant applications for Citizens Benefit Fund and R.E.A.C.H. Fund. The annual funding period is January through May and commission's funding recommendations are forwarded to the City Council for final approval in June.
