- Why LISC
LISC Jacksonville plays an integral role in LISC National’s legislative advocacy efforts. Janet Owens, executive director of LISC Jacksonville, personally visits our District's local Members of the House of Representatives and Florida U.S. Senators.
The major focus of these visits is the continued financial support of community development programs and initiatives housed in a variety of Federal Departments like Housing and Urban Development, Treasury, Education, National and Community Service, etc.
LISC National’s advocacy for federal programs starts with Congress. The policy briefs cover the range of federal initiatives on our advocacy agenda.
