Covina Housing Division PDF Print E-mail

ABx1 26 was enacted in late June 2011 effectively dissolving all California Redevelopment Agencies as well as terminating the source of the related twenty percent set-aside funding which was used to assist City housing programs. The Covina Housing Authority assumed the housing functions and assets of the dissolved Covina Redevelopment Agency. With the dissolution of the Covina Redevelopment Agency, there is no longer funding for qualifying housing related activities.

The Covina Housing Division provides assistance to residents for a variety of needs by providing resource information. Contact the Covina Housing Division by calling (626) 384-5442.

Covina Transitional Housing Program PDF Print E-mail

The Covina Housing Authority transitional house provides a location where homeless mothers with children are housed for up to twelve months, rent-free. The families are required to save a portion of their income, and to work closely with the case manager to reach their goals.

Homeless families are screened by program case managers. Once in the program, the household’s needs are assessed and an individual service plan is developed. Appropriate services are then secured.   Services include: job training, education, counseling, employment assistance, day care and life skills enhancement.   The family works toward the goals of increasing the household’s income and obtaining permanent housing.

After exiting the program, the case manager continues to follow the family for up to 6 months.

For more information on the transitional house program, please call the case manager at 626-350-5867.
