LISC works across Philadelphia to create neighborhoods of choice and opportunity.
We work in neighborhoods that have experienced disinvestment, but where community-based organizations and residents have been persistent in their struggle to improve conditions.
We believe through collaboration, engagement, and impact, we can transform communities into better places to live, work, play and raise families. We provide loans and equity investments and offer technical assistance, training, and capacity building to community partners to improve residents’ lives and the communities where they live.
We are active in many neighborhoods across the city, investing in programs, projects and organizations that align with our strategic priorities around housing; economic development; community engagement; creative placemaking; and community safety.
Our Sustainable Communities Initiatives in West Philadelphia, Eastern North Philadelphia, and Kensington showcase how LISC works best: comprehensively, in partnership with the community, and supporting multiple priorities to create neighborhood change.
LISC has invested most recently in the following neighborhoods:
