- About Us
- Our Work
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) equips communities with the capital, strategy, and know-how to become places where people can thrive. Working with local leaders, we invest in affordable housing, health, education, public safety and employment – all basic needs that must be tackled so that progress in one area is not undermined by neglect in another.
As part of a national organization with deep local roots, LISC Boston is uniquely positioned to share resources, best practices, and innovations with the communities we serve. 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.
Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) Boston is staffing up to grow our affordable housing and economic development lending, and to empower community groups through housing and real estate-based strategies. We are looking for a high-energy, creative, agile colleague with experience in real estate finance or development and interest in driving strategic initiatives to finance affordable housing, economic development, community-driven opportunity zone investment, and more.
LISC Boston is seeking a consultant to provide credit building coaching for entrepreneurs in Boston. The selected consultant will be expected to devote 12-15 hours per week for a contract period of 18 months, starting in mid-October.
The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) and the Mel King Institute for Community Building, in collaboration with Henry Joseph, Development Consultant, invite your CDC to participate in the next LISC Project Manager Seminar. Please contact Marilyn Sanchez at Msanchez@lisc.org for applications.
