Description Interest
In the spring of 1995, the Dwight Central Management Team (DCMT) began working with the Neighborhood Partnership network (NPN) and the Yale Urban Design Workshop (YUDW) to develop a Neighborhood Plan for Community Action. After a summer of studying the issues involved in the neighborhoods, the groups organized a 4-day community design workshop which was held at the Timothy Dwight School. During this 4-day charrette over 250 participants, including neighborhood residents, public officials and local community institutions, voiced their concerns and opinions about the neighborhood.

In September of 1996 the Plan was released. Dwight Neighborhood has made impressive progress towards many of the goals articulated in the Plan. Such accomplishments range from the development of the Greater Dwight Development Corporation (GDDC), a community development corporation with the capabilities to fundraise and manage the monies needed to improve the neighborhood, major improvements in safety, economic and social strength, housing as well as community wellness.

The neighborhood has also produced an impressive array of important individual projects, such as the Shaw’s Plaza, which is currently housing a strong community partner Stop & Shop.

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.

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.

The First Opportunity Zones Playbook is Here

We're excited to share the first installment of the LISC Opportunity Zones Playbook series, “Navigating the Opportunity Zones: Community Partners.” This playbook is geared to the people and organizations committed to community revitalization and shared prosperity for all residents.
