LISC wins $11MM from SIF to build basic job skills

A growing job market is a boon to families and communities—unless you don't have the basic math and reading skills to take advantage of it. The federal Social Innovation Fund is helping address that educational gap with a new $11.3 million grant to LISC for Bridges to Career Opportunities, a program that helps people lay the groundwork for earnings growth by addressing some fundamental challenges around basic literacy. It's part of the broad work of LISC's Financial Opportunity Centers to help low-income families stabilize their financial outlook and build for the future.

Meeting at the intersection of jobs, health and housing

Shovels hit the ground this week in Washington, D.C.'s Benning Heights neighborhood as a new development that will bring affordable apartments, health services and job training to low-income residents moved forward, thanks in part to $34 million from the Healthy Futures Fund. The Conway Center, developed by So Others Might Eat (SOME), is the largest investment to date by the fund—which is a partnership among LISC, Morgan Stanley and The Kresge Foundation to help connect good housing and good health care in disadvantaged communities.

The nuts and bolts of revitalizing Detroit

In the wake of the national housing crisis and Detroit's bankruptcy, leaders of three community development corporations (CDCs) discuss the changing landscape of their work in an article for Model D. As Detroit's funds for housing, economic development and public safety have dwindled, CDCs play an even larger role in improving neighborhoods and helping people stay in their homes. And resources such as zero-percent interest loans for home repair, made possible with LISC's support, help fill the gaps.
