The Housing and Community Development Advisory Committee (H.C.D.A.) consists of nine members
appointed by the City Council.  The only selection criterion is that those appointed be reasonable
representatives of Covina’s demographic patterns (age, sex, race, income, etc.).  Due to many recent
joint projects with the County of Los Angeles, residents of Covina’s County areas may be considered
for appointment to the H.C.D.A. Committee at the discretion of the City Council.

The term of appointment is four years.  The Committee meets at 7:00 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of the
following months: January, February, May, September, November and December.  Meetings are held
in the Public Library Community Room, 234 North Second Avenue, Covina.

All meetings are open to the public and are subject to a formal agenda noticed publicly in advance.  
Formal minutes are also prepared as a public record.

The function of the Committee is to advise the City Council in matters relating to the Housing and
Community Development Act of 1974.  The members are involved in the development and/or review
of all elements pertaining to the planning and preparation of the annual Community Development
Block Grant application.  The Committee evaluates the Grant programs and makes recommendations
to the City Council.
