LISC’s work in revitalizing urban and rural communities across the nation was featured on MSNBC’s Feb. 19 Morning Joe program. LISC president and CEO Michael Rubinger was interviewed in the studio by the MSNBC team.
Rural LISC is pleased to report that PNC has stepped forward with generous grant funding to help boost the revitalization and community-building efforts of Rural LISC Partner CDCs in PNC’s market area. The recent grant will support Rural LISC’s CDC Capacity Building Program for 14 Partner CDCs and one Strategic Partner in PNC market areas in 12 states.
Shovels are finally going to break ground in a long-vacant, “trash collector” lot in Rochester, New York’s, South Wedge neighborhood! Our Partner CDC, PathStone, has a project-in-the-works, Wedgepoint Apartments, that just received $13 million in resources that will allow construction to begin on 60 new apartments and three commercial spaces. Seven apartments will be specifically for people with disabilities. The apartment units are designed to help the growing number of families struggling to find a good home without burning a hole in their wallets.

Fayette County Community Action Agency (FCCAA), our CDC Partner in Uniontown, a former coal mining town in rural southwestern Pennsylvania, is receiving a $900,000 windfall, which it will use to build upon previous Rural LISC support, developing existing programs and creating new ones in three low-income neighborhoods, as well as expand the services of its Financial Opportunity Center.
