Project Access-New Haven (PA-NH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by a group of dedicated physicians who sought to address health concerns and inequities identified within the New Haven community. PA-NH, which is based on a program model that has been implemented in more than 50 communities across the U.S., increases access to specialty care and ancillary services for low-income, uninsured individuals in the Greater New Haven area by coordinating the provision of donated medical care and services and ensuring the delivery of comprehensive care to this population. PA-NH provides care through a network of over 300 volunteer physicians who donate their time and Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and the Hospital of Saint Raphael (HSR), which donate inpatient and outpatient medical services. At the core of the program are Patient Navigators who help patients obtain needed services and navigate a complex, confusing, and often intimidating healthcare system. By providing access to comprehensive care in a timely manner, PA-NH also reduces health disparities and fosters cost savings for the local healthcare system.

The Open Streets Project is partnering with the non-profit organization New Brunswick Tomorrow to deliver an educational Open Streets Study Tour in New Brunswick, NJ from October 6th - October 8th. The Study Tour will feature classroom sessions, networking opportunities, a behind the scenes tour of New Brunswick’s industry leading Ciclovia.
The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.
In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.
An article quoting CEO Maurice Jones in The Mercury News delved into the reasons LISC was chosen by Facebook, the city of East Palo Alto and Silicon Valley community groups to manage a multi-million dollar affordable housing fund: our track record of putting community needs at the forefront, including bringing employment, health and other needed services into the mix.
