Our Initiatives

Research Blog

In this blog, LISC’s Research and Evaluation team will discuss studies that inform our work and the broader community development field.

Through the lens of research, we’ll reflect on the impact of LISC and our partners, discuss trends that influence our neighborhoods, and describe emerging programs and policies that can support our communities.

We’ll highlight both original LISC research as well as path-breaking studies from the broader field that helps us learn how to forge resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity across America.
