LISC National
Our Work

Economic Opportunity

Neighborhoods flourish when residents have access to living wage jobs and goods and services they need.

Our financial stability initiatives help people build credit and savings, hone job skills and balance the household budget, so a paycheck can pay off.

We invest in programs that promote entrepreneurship, attract new businesses, diversify the local retail mix, and stimulate employment, and support local small business owners with a variety of loan products and technical assistance.
