CDFI Advisory Board

The CDFI Advisory Board ensures Alaska Growth Capital (AGC) is accountable to Low Income Communities and/or Low Income Persons, which is a requirement of the New Markets Tax Credit program. At least 20% of the members of the advisory board must represent Low Income Communities in the following ways: resident, business owners, religious leaders, or employees/board members of a community-based organization or governmental agency serving residents of low income communities.

AGC’s advisory board regularly exceeds the 20% representation requirement several fold, and includes members who have spent years advocating for, and providing services to, Low Income Communities and Low Income Persons.
