Local Initiatives Support Corporation
LISC equips struggling communities with the capital, strategy and know-how to become places where people can thrive.
Working with local leaders we invest in housing, health, education, public safety and employment - all basic needs that must be tackled at once so that progress in one is not undermined by neglect in another.
Sharing our expertise of 30-plus years, we bring together key local players to take on pressing challenges and incubate new solutions. With them, we help develop smarter public policy. Our toolkit is extensive. It includes loans, grants, equity investments and on-the-ground experience in some of America’s neediest neighborhoods.
LISC has 30 local offices across the coutnry as well as rural partners in 44 states.
