Covid-19 Resources

Amid mounting concerns around the spread of COVID-19 or coronavirus, LISC is taking actions to ensure that we can continue to support the people and places where we work. We will do so while protecting the health of our LISC team and contributing our utmost to help slow the spread of the virus across America.

This pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for the entire country and the world. In times of crisis, it is more important than ever that we stay well informed, connected and support each other. As resources arise that may benefit our partner organizations, we will attempt to organize and keep them updated. Do not hesitate to reach out to your local LISC contacts if you have questions or would like to add resources to these pages.

Covid-19 Neighborhood Business Resources - We are here to support the work that our vibrant business communities have been leading for decades. We bring business organizations together to learn from each other, build deeper partnerships, and knit a fabric of resilience and opportunity for our neighborhood businesses.

Covid-19 Arts & Culture Resources - From neighborhood revitalization to affordable housing, we integrate creative placemaking into everything we do. As such, we are advocates for strong artists and arts organizations. We honor those that help us all engage with the world creatively.

Covid-19 Developer & Real Estate Resources - LISC believes that neighborhoods know what is best for themselves. LISC supports small-scale local developers by providing tools that can help them navigate how to best use their resources to make neighborhood visions a reality.

Covid-19 Nonprofit Resources - As our name suggests, we support local initiatives. As such, we are advocates for strong local nonprofit partners, and wehelp nonprofit partners navigate the waters.

Covid-19 CDBG Funding Considerations - LISC is an “intermediary,” meaning that we act as a link. We support government by sharing with them what we hear and see in the neighborhoods where we work, while sharing the government’s good work with the people we engage with daily.
