- About Us
- Our Work
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) equips communities with the capital, strategy, and know-how to become places where people can thrive. Working with local leaders, we invest in affordable housing, health, education, public safety and employment – all basic needs that must be tackled so that progress in one area is not undermined by neglect in another.
As part of a national organization with deep local roots, LISC Boston is uniquely positioned to share resources, best practices, and innovations with the communities we serve. We provide funding, financing, and technical assistance to community development corporations (CDCs), nonprofit developers, grassroots organizations, as well as policy and advocacy organizations throughout Massachusetts.
This week, 225 small business owners struggling to stay afloat in underinvested communities across America will be receiving $10,000 grants, thanks to a partnership between LISC and Verizon. Boston businesses are among the winners who applied to the nationwide fund.
Nonprofit and Commonwealth’s second largest bank partner to support underserved small businesses impacted by COVID-19.
As the spread of COVID-19 in the US gradually impacts us all, LISC is first and foremost concerned with the safety and stability of the partners we work with and the communities we serve together.
