We are part of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), one of the country's largest community development financial institutions.
Legrand Lindor, CEO of CARIBBEAN APPAREL™ and LMI Textiles, works every day to inspire unity amongst Caribbean peoples through displays of pride in their own cultures. He received a $17,500 microloan through Impact Lending, a partnership between Northeastern University and LISC to grow his business.
LISC received a $200,000 investment from JPMorgan Chase's PRO Neighborhoods Initiative to spark the revitalization of vacant and underused commercial properties on Milwaukee's north and near south sides. "Ramp Up" will help develop local businesses and match them to pop-up retail sites.
LISC provided $8 million in New Markets Tax Credit allocation to support the development of a new workforce training center for SER - Jobs for Progress in Houston's East End. The center will double SER's direct client service and training capacity to 8,000 individuals. SER launched a fundraising campaign on September 19.
