Event Description

Dear New Haven Neighbors, Colleagues, Entrepreneurs, Wealth-Builders, Small Business Owners, Activists, Advocates, Movers & Shakers:


New Haven  Innovation Collaborative,, is hoping to partner with organizations investing in New Haven's post-COVID economic recovery.  Funding is available as a matching grant for programs that support local businesses and workers, particularly focusing on the economic well-being and business survival of those most impacted by the COVID crisis (predominantly young Black and Latinx residents and the service industry).   

Applications are due August 28th. Projects selected can expect to have their award confirmed by the end of September; we expect funding to be available beginning in November. Another funding round will be announced later this fall with a submission deadline in January. 

 Please feel invited to share this opportunity with any organization or person that you think would be interested. You can email Michael Harris directly with questions or for assistance developing ideas and completing the application online.   Contact info:

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
