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.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

LISC Charlotte Kicks Off with $2M in Operating Support

With initial funding from the city, foundations and banks, the new LISC Charlotte office opened its doors last week and announced its first program activity—a $25,000 capacity-building grant for Historic West End Partners, a high-impact local nonprofit. LISC Charlotte expects to invest at least $25 million to promote economic opportunity in the city’s neighborhoods over the next few years.

Building Women’s Futures

Only by reckoning with the past are we able to create a society that honors the dignity and wellbeing of all Americans. In recognition of Women’s History Month, we shine a spotlight on three LISC sites where our work is led by women and supports women in the communities we serve—and aims to build a future where everyone can thrive and prosper.

Impact Investing Expert Will Lead LISC’s New Atlanta Office

Dale Royal, a community developer with 30 years’ experience bringing economic development, affordable housing and transportation opportunities to underserved neighborhoods, will be the inaugural executive director of LISC’s newest office in Atlanta, GA. LISC has already invested $18 million in Atlanta for workforce and youth development projects, and our SBA lending affiliate, immito, has just closed its first transformative loan in the city. Royal’s arrival will take that commitment to another level, leveraging his expertise in connecting communities with the capital to help them flourish.
