For Five Years Running, LISC is Recognized as an ImpactAssets 50!

The LISC Lending department has been included for the fifth consecutive year as an ImpactAssets 50 2020 Fund, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. This year saw a record number of applications. As a leader in community development financing, LISC received the ranking in light of our $475 million outstanding portfolio balance and a delinquency rate under 2%.

The Good Word on How Faith-based Groups Are Turning Land into Homes

An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”

Putting Faith in a Local—and Ingenious—Solution for Affordable Housing

LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.
