Detroit LISC provides capital, technical expertise, training, and information to develop local leadership in creating affordable housing, spurring economic development, and supporting safe neighborhoods. Our goal is help neighbors build communities of choice where families and individuals can live, do business, have access to quality educational opportunities, and play. Since 1990, Detroit LISC has invested over $175.2M and leveraged over $738.4M in Detroit.
Detroit LISC is excited to announce a new lending product made possible by the partnership between National LISC and the Small Business Administration. The Community Advantage loan is offered to existing and growing small businesses in low-income neighborhoods with up to $250,000 to finance working capital, inventory, equipment, business acquisitions, real estate development, and tenant improvements.
