Residents share how after eight years of concentrated investment through NeighborhoodsNOW, St. Peter/Waterway has been transformed into a sustainable community.
Greater Kansas City LISC was asked to assemble a panel of stellar affordable housing professionals for the upcoming Alliance for Economic Inclusion meeting on April 30.
Due in large part to achieving significant milestones in 2013, Greater Kansas City LISC has been named a recipient of the prestigious Neighborhood Builders award by the Bank of America Charitable Foundation.
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.

In remarks delivered in Washington this month before a coalition of Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), LISC's Board Chair Robert Rubin, the former Treasury Secretary, says they have been "seeding innovation and helping the change the outlook of disinvested neighborhoods all over the country." CDFIs proved a vital resource especially during the recent recession, which took a "disproportionate toll on our poorest communities." "[B]ringing the residents of inner cities and distressed rural areas into the economic mainstream (is) central to our national competitiveness and the future of America's economy," says Rubin.
