Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Chicago is the local office of the nation’s leading community development support organization, working in Chicago neighborhoods since 1980. With residents and partners, LISC forges resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity across America – great places to live, work, visit, do business and raise families.
In the latest issue of the Stanford Social Innovation Review, LISC’s CEO Maurice A. Jones takes a close look at new research about LISC Chicago’s decade-long New Communities Program (NCP), one of the largest single-city community development efforts in the country, supported with major funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
