"This rating reaffirms LISC’s ongoing capacity to support inclusive growth and broadly shared prosperity across the country,” said Maurice A. Jones, LISC president and CEO. S&P pointed to LISC’s financial stability, track record of performance and community impact as compelling indicators for its ‘AA’ rating.
An exciting new commitment from Citi Foundation will ramp up LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities program and help some 10,000 American workers get the training and support they need to take on quality jobs in growth industries like health care and solar energy. The funding will enable 40 community organizations across the country to intensify their Bridges work, connecting residents to skills development and jobs, along with financial, health and housing services that improve quality of life.
