LISC National

Our Work


LISC works closely with our community partners to ensure that Buffalo’s resurgence doesn’t stop at the edges of downtown, the medical campus, or along the waterfront. It is our mission to extend that progress to neighborhoods across the city to ensure that they, too, can share in the benefits of Buffalo’s economic growth.

LISC’s comprehensive community development strategies are a proven, powerful form of economic stimulus for neighborhoods that can create new opportunities for residents. Our investments create jobs and support small businesses, improve educational outcomes, build safe, affordable housing, and expand access to recreational facilities, fresh food and health services. We collaborate with local leaders and community organizations to tackle not one, but all of these needs in order to raise standards of living so that all of Buffalo’s residents have the chance to thrive.
