Technical Assistance

Recognizing that effective community development requires strong local organizations, LISC provides technical assistance to help community development organizations to:

  • Plan and implement effective affordable housing and community development projects and programs;
  • Build strong organizational systems that insure productivity and long-term sustainability; and,
  • Convene community partnerships to build support for comprehensive community development approaches.

LISC provides technical assistance to help organizations successfully complete projects and manage assets for the community’s long-term benefit. LISC assistance guides organizations through the predevelopment, development, and management phases of projects including: site selection and acquisition; assembling financing; permitting; construction and asset and property management.

LISC also works closely with organizations to strengthen their organizational management and systems. LISC utilizes a variety of assessment tools as well as the resources of consultants and National LISC to identify organizational components that need strengthening. Among the topics addressed are: strong internal financial management systems; technology enhancements; transition planning; staff and board development; business planning and asset management systems.

Connecticut Statewide LISC calls upon specialized National LISC programs to provide technical resources on topics such as: community safety; health; charter school financing; creative placemaking and public policy.

Connecticut Statewide LISC also hosts training and forums that offer organizations an opportunity to learn best practices and to learn from their peers.
