The LPTFA and all  business matters related to the trust are managed by a board of seven volunteer trustees, led by a chairman and two other trust officers.

These trustees volunteer their time to ensure the trust’s financial resources are utilized in a manner that benefits the citizens of the City of Lafayette.



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].

Everything the LPTFA undertakes serves a public purpose. These causes encompass a wide spectrum ranging from providing financial and housing support for the less affluent residents of the City of Lafayette, to supporting housing, government services and civic initiatives. Specific projects the LPTFA undertakes are determined by a volunteer board of trustees who meet regularly.
