Residents share how after eight years of concentrated investment through NeighborhoodsNOW, St. Peter/Waterway has been transformed into a sustainable community.
We are seeking a qualified person as a full-time Assistant Program Officer (APO) who will provide program support to the new Financial Opportunity Center Network as well as policy and advocacy in support of our comprehensive community development program.
We are looking for an energetic self-starter with a passion for community development to join our team. If you are interested in guiding the successful implementation of programs and projects that will improve the quality of life in our urban neighborhoods, check out this job opportunity.
The first round of NeighborhoodsNOW grants for 2014 have been announced. Grants totaling $394,681 were awarded to 12 neighborhood groups and cover administrative as well as programmatic expenses.
Greater Kansas City LISC invested $9,739,592 in grants, contracts and loans in 2013 to support comprehensive urban redevelopment projects and programs. This is approximately a 41% increase over the 2012 investment of $6,887,978.
We are seeking a qualified person as a full-time Administrative/Program Assistant who will report to the Executive Director, and assist the Program Officers and Deputy Director as needed. The ideal candidate possesses a passion for neighborhood revitalization, and the skills to facilitate change through creative thinking, collaboration, and effective follow-through. This entry-level position is an integral member of the LISC team and its impact in the region, and could develop into a more senior level role.
Running a small business is always difficult, but entrepreneurs in low-income communities face a daunting challenge: the private market is failing to lend to borrowers in the most economically at-risk areas. That’s why LISC is partnering with the Small Business Administration's Community Advantage program to provide loans of up to $250,000 to small businesses working and growing in low-income neighborhoods. "These loans are much smaller than our traditional financing packages," says Kevin Boes, president of the New Markets Support Company, a Chicago-Based LISC affiliate, "but they are like oxygen for small businesses looking to grow and hire."
