Our Work

Capacity Bulding

Our work hinges on the insight, experience and expertise of community development groups rebuilding their own neighborhoods in Milwaukee. The better they do their job, the better we can do ours--and the more communities we support together.

So we help them to become more effective change-makers. We do this through financing, in the form of operating grants and working capital and providing training and learning opportunities that support equitable development in neighborhoods. 

In Milwaukee, we provide trainings and networking opportunities throughout the year to help build the field. At the national level LISC serves as an industry resource and clearinghouse for news, best practices and webinars for anyone who wants to learn more about our approach to comprehensive community development. LISC conferences, webinars, guidebooks, reports and research papers all aim to cast a wide net across sectors and practitioners, sharing knowledge and sparking conversations.
