What We Do

NeighborhoodsNOW


NeighborhoodsNOW is LISC's approach to comprehensive neighborhood revitalization. Since 2006, we have been investing in the capacity and vitality of six neighborhoods in Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas.

In May of 2016, five of these neighborhoods shared their new 2016-2018 Quality of Life Plans in front of stakeholders from city governments, foundations, neighborhood groups and investors. LISC will support the visions set out in these plans, to help the residents transform their communities.
