Our Priorities

Equitable Community Development


LISC takes a comprehensive, place-based approach to resident-led neighborhood revitalization. 

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

Working closely with organizations led by residents, local leader and stakeholders, we help craft multi-faceted plans that address a myriad of concerns and opportunities. These plans provide an agreed-upon blueprint for the revitalization process and help partners attract greater investment and additional resources for family income supports, economic development, education, community safety, resident leadership, and arts and culture. 

LISC supports neighbors and residents to become more effective change-makers. We do this through financing, capacity building and working capital. And it happens via training programs and learning opportunities for staff and leadership at the community development corporations (CDCs) and many other local groups with whom we partner.
