LISC National

About Us


The Hartford LISC program was launched in 1984 with goal of bringing financial and technical resources to support the local neighborhood initiatives in Hartford. With the collaboration of many partners, Hartford LISC advances neighborhood revitalization through strategic investment that:  

  • Increases access to quality affordable rental and owner-occupied housing where residents can stabilize their incomes for the future; 
  • Improves quality of life by eliminating blight, creating healthy housing and environments, and improving public safety; 
  • Strengthens opportunity and community connections through resident services, education and engagement; and,
  • Advocates for policies and programs that support effective community development.

Hartford LISC is part of a leading national organization with strong local roots. Program staff offer years of experience with in-depth knowledge of Hartford and Connecticut and are able to leverage the resources of National LISC. The Hartford LISC program is guided by the Local Advisory Committee, composed of LISC’s funders, investors and opinion leaders.

Since 1984, Hartford LISC has invested $44 million and has leveraged over $350 million of community development investment in Hartford neighborhoods.
