LISC National
Our Work


LISC Chicago invests strategically throughout the metro area to foster stronger and healthier communities. 

While the bulk of our financial support is in lending and equity investments, much of it could not be done without also supporting the neighborhood groups that have the vision and ideas to get things done. Through our local office and national programs, we strategically provide grant funding to assist organizations. Grants are designed and provided consistent with local strategies and local community development needs.

Small Business Capacity Building

LISC Chicago invites applications from eligible 501(c)(3) organizations seeking to support small business growth and sustainability in eligible Chicago neighborhoods and corridors.
