Budget Message The budget information submitted as part of the report for the LPC Board includes revenue associated with MFT's. The Marriage and Family Therapy Advisory Committee's (MFTAC) budget is part of the LPC Board budget. We track MFT revenue and MFTAC Board member travel expenses separately; however, expense and revenue numbers reported for the LPC Board are reflective of revenue for both licenses and travel expenses for all Board members.
