What is LISC?

We are LISC—the Local Initiatives Support Corporation. It may be a mouthful, but our name does, in fact, say it all. We are a national organization with a grassroots focus. Bay Area LISC is one of 31 local LISC sites throughout the country, and is dedicated to helping community residents transform disinvested Bay Area neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity - good places to work, do business, and raise children.

Bay Area LISC helps make neighborhood dreams a reality by working with cities, residents, nonprofit organizations, and key public and private partners to build healthy communities by creating affordable housing, supporting local neighborhood economic development, and by helping families reach financial stability through integrated financial services and support.
