Council Basics


To be an effective and engaged LCC member, it is important to know the requirements and processes used to administer the grant cycle. Every member should read the LCC Program Guidelines. We encourage the LCC to save the PDF and have a printed copy available to reference at each meeting.

New Member Orientation

New members are required to review these documents within the first three months of their service.
