About Us


Our Vision
Every low-income community has the chance to thrive.

Our Mission
The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is dedicated to helping community residents transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities  — good places to work, do business and raise children. 

LISC mobilizes corporate, government and philanthropic support to provide local community development organizations with:

  • loans, grants and equity investments
  • local, statewide and national policy support
  • technical and management assistance

The Result
We help create good places to live, work, do business and raise children.
