LISC National

What is LISC?

We are LISC DC, the DC office of the nation’s largest community development organization. LISC is a national organization with a local focus, rooted in the belief that neighborhood leaders and organizations best understand the assets and needs of their communities.  

In order to create a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable DC Region, we support our communities in three main ways. We provide financial and human capital to build the capacity of our partners and improve neighborhoods. We invest in affordable housing and neighborhood assets to improve social, economic, and physical health. We amplify the voices of disenfranchised communities and advocate with them for policy solutions and resources. 

Since 1982, we have invested $450 million, leveraging over $2.3 billion. With LISC DC support, our partners have built or preserved over 13,000 affordable homes and 2.5 million square feet of retail, community, and educational space across the Washington, D.C. Region.
