New Markets Support Company (NMSC) delivers creative financing solutions to empower underserved communities across the country. We increase access to capital by tailoring our products and services to meet the needs of our clients and partners. Over the past 15 years, we've invested more than $950 million into real estate developments and businesses in distressed communities.
We are a subsidiary of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), one of the country's largest community development financial institutions.
In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), we're profiling emerging enterprises in the communities where we work that have benefited from LISC small business lending and support. Encouraging local entrepreneurs to realize their dreams and grow community wealth is at the heart of our mission to help people and places harness prosperity. A Chicago home-cooking restaurant (in a neighborhood where there was only fast food) kicks off our series. Dig in!
LISC provided New Markets Tax Credit financing through its Healthy Futures Fund to support a new health clinic in Tempe, Arizona. The project transformed a former 30,000 square-foot boat dealership into a community health center.
LISC made a small business loan to Evelyn's Food Love in Washington Park, Chicago. Business owner Evelyn was recently highlighted in "South Side Patch."
