Join the "I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits"

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Your organization is invited to participate in the "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" campaign.

Now in its second year, this initiative will be promoted during the International Festival of Arts & Ideas when representatives from New Haven's nonprofits will get the word out about the value of nonprofit to our community through distribution of "impact fact cards" and other fun activities. If you participated last year, your "impact fact card" will be used again.

To add your organization to the fact cards distributed at this year's Festival (only if you did NOT participate last year, because we are still using those cards) go to this link:

Visit 2009 GNHNP Impact Cards to see last year's impact cards here

You do not need to attend the Box City or concerts to participate, but we ask each organization provide at least two volunteers over the course of each weekend to help with the campaign. Deadline for submission of your organization's fact card is 5pm on Friday, May 21.

Here's How it Works:

Representatives from area nonprofits will dispense "I Love Greater New Haven Non-Profits" stickers as well as "Impact Fact Trading Cards" during two weekends of the Arts & Ideas Festival.

Saturday, June 12 and Sunday, June 13 from 12:00 - 5:00pm: "Box City," 900 Chapel Street, New Haven.

Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20 from 5:00 - 7:00pm: during concerts on the Green.

Volunteers will encourage people to trade cards and complete a crossword puzzle educating them about the great diversity of work and impact of Greater New Haven nonprofits. There will be prizes to encourage people to complete the crossword puzzle.

Our hope is that the stickers, cards, and crossword puzzle will inspire people to talk about the incredible value and importance of nonprofit organizations to the New Haven community, creating a collective "buzz" that will build support for all of our work.

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

“Four Years, $13 Million and Dozens of Hands”: MarketWatch Dives Deep Into LISC’s Work in D.C.

A deeply-reported MarketWatch article unpacks the incredibly complex process of creating affordable housing by profiling an apartment complex in Washington D.C. that LISC has helped preserve. Extensive interviews with our CEO, LISC D.C. executive director Ramon Jacobson and senior program officer Adam Kent are at the heart of this emblematic story of how we bring together private and public capital partners with developers and residents, and work to empower people to stay in the places they call home. A must read.

U.S. Treasury Awards $60 Million in New Market Tax Credits to LISC

The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, part of the U.S. Treasury department, announced the recipients of $3.5 billion in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocations for 2019. $60 million was allocated to LISC’s subsidiary, the New Markets Support Company. Since its inception, NMSC has harnessed $1 billion in tax credits to offer flexible capital for projects that benefit low-income communities across the count--projects ranging from Cincinatti’s CityLink Center, home to 15 social service agencies, to a health clinic-plus-grocery store in Brockton, MA to the public library in Petersburg, VA.

We’re Not Spending Nearly Enough to Reduce Homelessness

Ricardo Flores, ED of LISC San Diego, published an emphatic op-ed in the Voice of San Diego about the desperate need for more local and state spending to alleviate homelessness. As in nearly every part of the country, San Diego’s homeless population is growing, and last year suffered a Hepatitis A outbreak. “Today’s homelessness crisis has the potential to worsen into a catastrophic public health disaster,” warned Flores, explaining that preventive strategies, housing and support services demand much greater investment to head off a larger crisis.
