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.
A theme is emerging among Chicago neighborhoods who took part in creating Quality-of-Life Plans (QLPs) this year: People have the power and they are ready to wield it. Three new plans, which encompass areas of opportunity ranging from housing and jobs, to arts and culture, image re-brands, increased civic engagement and public safety, are set for publication this year, spearheaded by Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Chicago and its community partners in Hermosa/Logan Square West, North Lawndale and Austin.
