What the Court said on fair housing

LISC and housing organizations across the country are celebrating the Supreme Court's decision to preserve the long-held concept of "disparate impact" when it comes to evaluating discrimination under the federal Fair Housing Act. What does it mean for community development, especially the Low Income Housing Tax Credit program? LISC's Matt Josephs takes an early look at the landmark ruling—applauding the way the Court both upheld this important concept and reiterated the importance of revitalizing low-income communities.

Creative placemaking on the move in Indianapolis

An Indy arts group, “Big Car,” is helping drive growth in an area where empty storefronts and poverty abound. With a façade grant and other support from LISC, Big Car is rehabbing, for starters, a former tube factory as its headquarters and at least five vacant homes for artists’ housing. The goal of the $1.5 million initiative is to nurture creativity and livability at once, in partnership with existing neighbors.

The "a-ha" moment: Seeing how better communities make for better health

Helping revitalize neighborhoods through a holistic approach is LISC’s stock-in-trade. But we have come to see, in increments, how community development and health go hand in hand. In a video conference for the Build Healthy Places Network, LISC’s national program director for community health, Amy Gillman, describes her own “a-ha” moment when she began to apprehend how housing, education and income determine our well-being and longevity.
