HCA engages the National Advisory Leadership Council (NLAC) in reviewing our whitepapers prior to publishing them. The NLAC is our advisory board of industry professionals ranging from nonprofit consumer education and fair housing, to mortgage lenders and down payment assistance providers, each with decades of experience themselves and from organizations & companies with deep impact in homeownership. The NLAC also advises HCA on industry issues, developing trends, and areas needing advocacy or research.
