The unstable state of American housing

Low rates of ownership, rising rents and housing distress in many minority and impoverished neighborhoods: that’s the upshot of the new State of the Nation’s Housing 2015, an in-depth report from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies that shows how the much-touted, post-recession rebound is not all that. LISC’s director of housing, Celia Smoot, discussed these issues, and the importance of ensuring long-term affordability for low-income residents, on a video roundtable with NPR’s Jim Zarroli and a panel of housing experts.

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.
