Supporting Lafayette Through Community Involvement

Addressing essential public functions conducted in the public interest.

What is LPTFA?

The Lafayette Public Trust Financing Authority (LPTFA) supports the City of Lafayette through a range of finance-related programs and community involvement efforts. We are dedicated to utilizing the trust’s financial resources in a manner that benefits the City of Lafayette. The LPTFA is self-supporting and its operations, programs and projects are funded solely by self-generated revenues.

LPTFA has never received any tax or other budget appropriation or funding from the City of Lafayette or the State of Louisiana for its operations and has never requested such funds.

Our Projects

Over the years the LPTFA has supported a wide range of endeavors that have benefited the City of Lafayette in many ways – from low-income family housing to public transportation, parks and so much more.

About Our Board Meetings

The LPTFA board of trustees meets every two months to discuss various initiatives that the trust may wish to undertake. Just as importantly, the trustees meet to field requests for support from various areas of the Lafayette community. This is in keeping with the trust’s mission to further and accomplish any public function and purpose of the City of Lafayette. To obtain a schedule of the meetings, contact the Director of Operations, Rebekke Miller at [email protected].
