Equitable Community Development


LISC takes a comprehensive, place-based approach to resident-led neighborhood revitalization. 

Working closely with organizations led by residents, local leader and stakeholders, we help neighborhoods craft multi-faceted plans that address a myriad of concerns and opportunities. These plans provide an agreed-upon blueprint for the revitalization process and help partners attract greater investment for affordable housing and other real estate development and additional resources for family income supports, economic development, education, community safety, resident leadership, and arts and culture. 

Philadelphia LISC's Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) work centers on four focus neighborhoods in Philadelphia. We know that our comprehensive approach changes the trajectory of lower-income communities. That’s why LISC will expand its equitable development approach in neighborhoods across Philadelphia over the next five years.
