Combatting a Water Crisis with Entrepreneurship, and Heart

Jonathan Quarles is a Flint, MI small business owner who received a $10,000 grant from LISC and Verizon to help weather the pandemic's economic crisis. His business is a story worth telling: Quarles harvests and distributes clean water from the atmosphere, creating jobs, opportunity and "empowering the city that raised me" in the bargain.

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
