The NBC-LEO Foundation, Inc. was formed by the NLC National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials constituency group several years ago as an independent, charitable nonprofit corporation and was officially launched in 2007. Its mission, under the leadership of its Board of Directors composed of corporate and government representatives, is to support and conduct non-partisan research, technical assistance, training, and educational and informational activities/programs to advance African American political participation at the local level, promote municipal employment of African Americans, and develop positive perceptions about government by African American citizens.  NLC serves as the administrator of the Foundation and Fellows Program.
