Our Priorities

Economic Development 


LISC helps to boost the health of neighborhoods and advance equity by investing in the physical and social assets of a community.  Focusing on both people and place, we help create vibrant, welcoming neighborhood commercial districts and help families build smart money habits, increase income, and build wealth.

Philadelphia LISC has a dual approach to economic development:

LISC provides grants, loans, and capacity building to community-based partners to plan and implement both of these economic development strategies.
