LISC is a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that offers financing during all stages of projects, from predevelopment to permanent financing, across a wide variety of community development project types, from large affordable housing projects to small business loans. We seek to strike the right balance between taking risks consistent with our role as a charitable lender and recovering our capital so we can make funds available to future projects.
