Purpose & Responsibilities

The purpose of the committee is to provide citizen representatives of Spokane County with the opportunity to participate in, comment on, and review all funding proposals for the Housing and Community Development Division. HCDAC is made up of 17 citizen representatives from throughout Spokane County. Each of the twelve participating cities and towns in the Urban County Consortium is represented on the Committee by a local resident, mayor, councilperson, or employee. The remaining "at large" positions are made up of citizens from the remaining unincorporated areas of the County.

Incorporated area representatives are nominated by their local elected official (Mayor) and receive formal approval and appointment through the Spokane County Board of Commissioners (BoCC). Unincorporated area representatives are regularly recruited through the Commissioner's office as positions become open.

In making Committee appointments, the County Commissioners give special consideration to geographic representation, professional skills, community interest, and representation of the low and moderate-income target populations, including:
