A new $2.5 million grant from the bank will help LISC expand Financial Opportunity Centers in 15 cities so they can reach more people with more services, and help people raise their incomes and overall standards of living.

In DC, LISC selected as Fund Manager for a new Housing Preservation Fund

LISC has been selected by the Department of Housing and Community Development to serve as fund manager for the District’s new Housing Preservation Fund with the award of $5 million for LISC to invest. As the preservation fund manager, LISC will invest $20 million in ensuring that low income Washingtonians can remain a part of the District’s bright future.

A Bold New $45 Million Partnership Takes Aim at the Health Gap

A vigorous and unprecedented partnership between LISC and ProMedica, an Ohio-based integrated health system, is set to inject tens of millions of dollars to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in underinvested Toledo neighborhoods. The collaboration, which will serve as a national model, will fund opportunities for employment, income-building, education, community safety and affordable housing—all the social determinants that shape a person’s health. “When we connect [the] talent and resources [of the healthcare industry] to the expertise of community developers, we have an opportunity to drive changes that help people live better—literally adding years to their life,” said LISC CEO Maurice Jones. “That’s incredibly powerful.”
