Our Work

Policy & Advocacy


Supportive public policies are critical to transforming distressed communities into vibrant places to live, work, do business and raise families. LISC recognizes the important role that Federal and State government play in influencing cities, neighborhoods and communities and they are important partners in our work. LISC’s approach to public policy is driven by the needs of the low-income neighborhoods where we work, and is informed by the insight of our partners on the ground.

At the Federal level, LISC works with Congress and federal agencies to establish and safeguard funding sources, policies, programs and strategies that spur neighborhood revitalization in urban and rural communities throughout the country. 

At the State level, LISC works with State agencies, legislators and many partner organizations to build support for affordable housing and community development that will benefit the residents of Connecticut.
