Philadelphia LISC works alongside partners to create equitable neighborhoods of choice and opportunity.
Philadelphia LISC is a champion for equitable community development; working alongside residents and partners to forge inclusive communities of choice and opportunity.
We leverage corporate, government, and philanthropic resources to equip underserved communities with the capital, strategy and know-how to become places to thrive. Our toolkit is extensive. It includes loans, grants, equity investments, capacity building, and is informed by resident-led solutions.
Our Guiding Principles:
Philadelphia’s underserved neighborhoods become better places to live, work, do business and raise families. Since 1980, Philadelphia LISC has invested more than $435 million to build or preserve more than 8,500 affordable homes and to develop more than 2.3 million square feet of retail, community, and educational space.
Because our approach is comprehensive, Philadelphia LISC has developed particular leadership and expertise in a number of programmatic priorities. Learn about our priority programs and areas of expertise.
