Event Description

Housing Can Improve School Performance, Children's Health -- Tickets Going Fast!

How much better would children do in school, how much would their health improve, and how many state education dollars would be saved if children didn't have to live in housing beset with mold, dust mites, lead paint and other hazards? How would children and school budgets fare if children could live in housing their parents could afford, so there was less mobility, homelessness and overcrowding? If families that can now afford only certain neighborhoods with few community services and overburdened schools could move to affordable homes in towns, neighborhoods and school systems that better met their children's needs, would the children be better off, and would our economy and state expenditures benefit? Those questions will be explored and answered at "Housing, Education & Healthcare: Creating Housing That Enhances School Performance & Health," 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. April 28 at The Lyceum in Hartford. Part of the five-part "Housing: The Hub of Public Policy" 2010 Lyceum Series, the free forum will feature experts from Columbia and Yale Universities, the state Departments of Public Health, Education and Children and Families, CT Children's Medical Center, the non-profit sector, major foundations and other key stakeholders. For reservations and information: David Fink, david@ctpartnership housing.com, and Sarah Benson, Sarah@ctpartnershiphousing.com, or call 860/244-0066.

Rethinking Ways to Get Capital to Small Businesses

The pandemic has prodded state and local governments to think hard and act quickly to move public money into shoring up the small business sector. An article in Next City looks at how new public-private partnerships—particularly ones engaging CDFIs, like the LISC-managed NY Forward Loan Fund—are paving the way to make equitable small business development part of a new normal.

Partnership Means Being Prepared

In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.

For Six Years Running, LISC is Recognized as an ImpactAssets 50

LISC has been named one of the ImpactAssets 50, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. LISC is one of seven community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that were selected for this year’s IA 50, reflecting the critical role CDFIs have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.
