Who We Are

Strategic Plan, 2019-2020

LISC is uniquely positioned to support comprehensive community development strategies and projects that address the cross-disciplinary array of neighborhood conditions that have been identified as social determinants of health.

As such, LISC Indianapolis’ three-year strategic plan (2019 – 2021) is centered on addressing social determinants of health through the interconnected disciplines of creative placemaking, economic development, and talent development. LISC’s commitments to improve Livability, Opportunity, Vitality, and Education (LOVE) in Indianapolis neighborhoods over the next three years are informed by and connected to investments that address health equity outcomes for neighborhood residents over the next 20 years.
