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.
As Independence Day approaches, we at LISC are reflecting on the ideals upon which our country was founded, and what they mean to us today. Our mission, in fact, is a call to realize those ideals in their best, most inclusive sense. And that demands a dynamic, unrelenting push to close the gap between our principles as a nation and the reality in which too many Americans exist.
For more than 30 years, LISC’s National Equity Fund (NEF) affiliate has been developing innovative solutions to affordable housing challenges. In a Q&A conversation with LISC, new CEO Matt Reilein takes a look at NEF’s unique value proposition, as the company looks to build on its record $1.2 billion in investments from 2018.
The NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program announced grants totaling $3 million to newly build or significantly renovate fields in parks, schools or at community organizations in 14 cities from Brooklyn to Houston and Racine, WI to Indian Trail, NC. The funds will be used for improvements such as irrigation systems, lights, bleachers, scoreboards and more. About a partnership that has lasted 20 years, Alexia Gallagher, executive director of the NFL Foundation stated: “With more than one million youth using these fields, which provide safe places for families to come together and participate in sports, the benefits of the NFL Foundation/LISC Grassroots Field Grant Program are indisputable.”
