LISC National
What We Do


We know that place matters – research has shown that where you live has a dramatic effect on the length and quality of your life. In Los Angeles, the built environment has an enormous influence on health behaviors and plays a key role in ensuring a healthy lifestyle. As such, physical and social environments that are designed to promote good health at home and in our neighborhoods are critical to the success of our communities.

LISC's Elevating Equity: Health and Housing Initiative includes actionable policies, programs, and strategies that can be implemented by developers to help improve health determinants for residents and incentivize healthy behavior and opportunities. LA LISC is committed to supporting our partners in identifying sustainable property management strategies and resources for their aging portfolios that preserve quality affordable housing and promote better health outcomes for low-income residents. 

Our collaborations with the NFL Foundation “Grassroots” program and ESPN’s Home Court program, help schools and community organizations build or rehab football fields and renovate basketball courts.
