In the wake of George Floyd's murder, LISC Twin Cities is committed now, more than ever, to work hand-in-hand with the community to help heal, contribute to systemic change that will better serve community needs and help rebuild stronger neighborhoods. As one of the largest organizations supporting projects to revitalize and bring greater economic opportunity to the Twin Cities, we will work to help bring the necessary resources to rebuild our community.
Since this past December, LISC Twin Cities has worked closely with community partners, tenants, funders, and city governments in order to help make three significant purchases that will positively impact the lives of thousands of tenants in the metro area, helping preserve affordable housing in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
LISC Twin Cities is here to provide support during times of crisis in order to help people and small businesses. Our approach is inclusive and we seek to intentionally bring resources to communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic - including our most underserved communities. We're proud to announce that we are collaborating with U.S. Bank and Asian Economic Development Association (AEDA) to help people and small businesses in and around the Little Mekong area along the Green Line light rail transit
