- 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.
Join LISC Boston at its 4th Annual Local Founders Stage event on November 2, a small business pitch competition! This year, we are teaming up with BECMA during their Mass Black Expo at the Boston Convention & Exhibit Center.
Join us for an evening celebrating stories from our neighbors, community partners, and friends. Tickets and the Call for Stories are available now.
On September 26 at the DeWitt Center in Roxbury, LISC convened a discussion on Opportunity Zone investments and announced grant awards for projects in Lawrence, Boston, Worcester, Chelsea, Brockton, Holyoke, and Somerville.
