Helping Neighbors Build Community Across Massachusetts

Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) equips communities with the capital, strategy, and know-how to become places where people can thrive.

We provide funding, financing, and technical assistance to community development corporations (CDCs), nonprofit developers, grassroots organizations, as well as policy and advocacy organizations throughout Massachusetts.
