- Our Work
LISC Milwaukee’s approach is comprehensive, collaborative, equitable, and targeted. Our programs and partnerships are designed to strategically layer for maximum impact in building healthy neighborhoods, and bringing economic prosperity to our city.
LISC’s economic development initiatives boost the health of neighborhoods by investing in the physical and social assets of a community's business district.
Affordable housing has benefits that extend beyond the walls of a home to the community at large.
We know that healthy, sustainable communities are made up of people who have living wage jobs and feel confident about their economic futures.
Safety is fundamental to the health and vitality of communities.
Our work hinges on the insight, experience and expertise of community development groups rebuilding their own neighborhoods in Milwaukee.
To be effective at what we do requires having both an on-the-ground view of neighborhoods, and a panoramic take on all the forces that shape communities.
Our purpose as a non-profit CDFI is to provide capital to projects in low-income, disadvantaged and underserved communities at affordable rates.
