Since opening our doors in 1998, our local office has invested $131 million in those neighborhoods, further leveraging an additional $254 million in investment. Our work has resulted in the creation of 2,574 units of affordable housing, 355,000 square feet of commercial space, and the renovation of 9 recreational fields for youth.
Since LISC opened its Buffalo office 20 years ago, one of the core components of our work has been implementing HUD’s Section IV grant program. This capacity building program has had a tremendous impact on driving community development activity here in Buffalo.
Once a dilapidated area on Buffalo's East Side, Perkins Park was the site of a ground breaking ceremony for a new sports complex. The complex will include a youth football field, ball hockey rink, and programs foor other sports like lacrosse, soccer, volleyball, tennis, and more.
