Sustainable Communities


LISC’s Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) is 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-facted plans that address a myriad of concerns and opportunities. These plans provide an agree-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. 

At LISC, we are committed to working in our neighborhoods for the long-haul from the planning stage to implementation. We have the staff, the expertise and the relationships to help neighboprhoods and its residents succeed.

SCI priorities include:

Philadelphia LISC has designated three SCI neighborhoods in Philadelphia: West PhiladelphiaEastern North Philadelphia, and Kensington.

We know that our comprehensive approach changes the trajectory of lower-income communities. That’s why LISC will expand its SCI approach in neighborhoods across Philadelphia over the next five years.
