LISC National

Our Impact

As the Local Initiatives Support Corporation, supporting the initiative and vision of our nonprofit partners is at the heart of our name – it is who we are and how we work. We measure our success by our ability to help them achieve sought after results, outcomes, and projects. 

Since 1982, LISC has invested:

$450 million
in communities in the DC region, resulting in:
affordable homes and apartments
2.5 million sq. ft.
of commercial, retail, and community space
“For many of us, it’s stability, knowing where we are going to be, where we can live, without fear. To put down roots and be a part of a living community — not one full of violence and crime — where we are comfortable.”
— James Washington, president of the Phoenix Tenants’ Association
