We are one of the nation's largest CDFIs - or Community Development Financial Institution - an organization that invests money in community groups working to revitalize disinvested neighborhoods. Additionally, we are the nation's largest nonprofit lender. LISC’s role as a non-profit CDFI is to provide capital to projects in low-income, disadvantaged and underserved communities at affordable rates. We are profitable, but we are not profit-maximizing. We put community first.
LISC Western New York is one of 35 local LISC offices throughout the country, and is dedicated to helping community residents transform disinvested Western New York neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity - good places to work, do business, and raise children.
