Hartford LISC is one of over 30 local programs of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation’s largest community development support organization. Our mission is to help community residents create healthy and sustainable places of choice and opportunity – good places to live, work, raise children and conduct business. We mobilize corporate, government, individual donor and philanthropic support and invest these resources into the projects, programs and initiatives that build on the assets and address the challenges of Hartford's neighborhoods.
Public programs that pave the road into the middle class are an investment in our country’s greatest asset—its people. As LISC and other organizations weigh in on the USDA’s proposed rule changes to the Supplementary Nutritional Assistance Program, Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, discusses the imperative of protecting federal assistance that helps catalyze financial stability for our country’s most vulnerable residents—and boosts the health of our economy.
