Our 40th Anniversary

We have much to celebrate.

LISC is turning 40! Since 1979, we have invested more than $18 billion in helping communities become great places to live, work, learn, do business and raise families.

We connect people to quality, affordable housing and to economic security through job readiness and good employment. We increase access to excellent healthcare and education. And we build capacity for residents to make their communities safer and business-friendly, spurring dynamic commercial districts and entrepreneurship.

In four decades, we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to catalyze opportunity and make the American Dream possible for all residents. As far as we’re concerned, we’re just warming up for the vital work ahead.

The potential for change is greater than it’s ever been. So we’re expanding our programming and our reach.

We’re opening offices in the South, and growing our initiatives in rural America. We’re expanding our investments in economic development and putting an even sharper focus on linking people to family-sustaining jobs, and to healthier living. With exciting new partners and policy goals, we are committed to revving up economic mobility in all our communities.

It’s been an extraordinary 40 years. Let’s celebrate this milestone—and the promise of continued community transformation--together!
