Every neighborhood is a unique tapestry—a complex system of interconnected, moving parts. That is precisely why no single solution can ever hope to address all of a struggling neighborhood’s needs. Disinvested places must be revived on multiple fronts. LISC helps residents and local organizations do just that.
We invest in overlapping program areas that reach into every corner of community life. Our approach is comprehensive, effective and—most important—rooted in what neighbors want for themselves, their families and the places they call home.
A safe, affordable home is one of the basic requisites of life—a key to individual health and well-being, and the foundation for sustainable, economically vibrant and diverse neighborhoods.
LISC helps to create, stabilize, and expand small businesses and implement creative corridor revitalization initiatives in underserved neighborhoods by providing grants and technical support to community development organizations. We’re committed to empowering entrepreneurs in communities of color who’ve been overlooked by traditional financing channels and supporting them as they turn their visions into reality.
