In 1979, when the Ford Foundation first conceived of LISC, it envisioned an “intermediary”—a smart and nimble non-profit that would connect hard-to-tap public and private resources with underinvested places and people working to access opportunities everyone of us deserves.
Over the past 40 years, LISC has evolved from a national non-profit lending arm of the Ford Foundation, to the largest independent nonprofit CDFI in the country, supporting initiatives and investments in housing, business, jobs, education, safety, and health.
