Rebuilding on What Was Razed

The Greater Fulton area of Richmond, VA was a bustling, tightly-knit African American neighborhood in the early part of the 20th century, before it fell prey to hard times and an urban renewal policy that decided the place was more easily razed than revived. Forty years later, LISC and a local developer have incorporated the community’s vision into a rebuilding plan that begins with a $40 million, mixed-use, affordable housing complex.

Three Cheers for LISC Jacksonville

A little recognition never hurts: A recent op-ed in Jacksonville’s Times-Union sings LISC’s praises and tallies up its investments ($61 mil in grants and loans), units of housing built (more than 1,800) and jobs created (some 3,100). It all adds up to livelier, safer neighborhoods and businesses and—maybe best of all—local residents empowered to build on these successes.

Better Housing & Healthcare for Immigrant Communities

Two of the most important factors for a healthy community is a good home and good health. Simple ideas but not always simple to bring together, especially in low-income neighborhood like the East Side of St. Paul, which serves up to eight immigrant populations. A new case study in Build Healthy Places Network of the Rolling Hills Apartments, where LISC invested $9.6 million, shows how it gets done.
