Who We Are


Local Initiatives Support Corporation helps nonprofit community development organizations transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity--good places to work, do business and raise children. Greater Newark LISC, one of 31 local offices, was established in 1986 and since then has collaborated with community based organizations in Newark and the surrounding region to improve the quality of life for local residents and business owners.

$640 million
leveraged

With support from our affiliates, we have invested $99 million dollars in Greater Newark, leveraged $640 million and have contributed to the production of more than 2,309 affordable homes and apartments and more than 526,402 square feet of commercial and community space.

Our comprehensive community development strategy seeks to build upon this base as we support a targeted, yet more comprehensive, revitalization strategy within our local footprint. Greater Newark LISC invests in communities in Newark, Jersey City, Orange, East Orange, and Irvington.
