LISC

The Institute for Comprehensive Community Development is a venture of Local Initiatives Support Corporation. LISC is a national organization with a community focus. It is dedicated to helping community residents transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy and sustainable communities of choice and opportunity — good places to work, do business and raise children. LISC mobilizes corporate, government and philanthropic support to provide local community development organizations with:

  • loans, grants and equity investments
  • local, statewide and national policy support
  • technical and management assistance

LISC program staff are based in every city and many of the rural areas where LISC-supported community development takes shape. In collaboration with local community development groups, LISC staff help identify priorities and challenges, delivering the most appropriate support to meet local needs.

LISC is Building Sustainable Communities by achieving five goals:

  • Expanding Investment in Housing and Other Real Estate
  • Increasing Family Income and Wealth
  • Stimulating Economic Development
  • Improving Access to Quality Education
  • Supporting Healthy Environments and Lifestyles
