Supportive public policies are critical to transforming distressed communities into vibrant places to live, work, do business and raise families. LISC recognizes the important role that the federal government plays in influencing cities, neighborhoods and communities. That's why we work with Congress and federal agencies to establish and safeguard funding sources, policies, programs and strategies that spur neighborhood revitalization in urban and rural communities throughout the country.
Our approach to public policy is driven by the needs of the low-income neighborhoods where we work, and is informed by the insight of our partners on the ground. That perspective makes us uniquely qualified to inform policymakers in Washington and promote policies that can change neighborhoods into healthy, thriving and sustainable communities. Our comprehensive approach to community development, coupled with our track record of leveraging substantial amounts of capital, has attracted support from across the political spectrum.
LISC and its partners utilize a wide array of federal programs that cut across several agencies and congressional committees. Some of the federal programs that are most critical to our efforts are listed here.
