About Us

Flint Local Advisory Committee (LAC)

A unique aspect of LISC’s national/local partnership is the Local Advisory Committee. Each local program, as well as LISC’s National Rural Program, has an advisory committee that has responsibility for providing guidance and direction for the program, reviewing and approving all requests for LISC grant and loan support to CDCs and private developers, and acting as our ambassadors to the world outside of LISC. 

We are very pleased to have you as part of our LAC!
