In DC, a Bridge Designed to Soothe Troubled Waters

A deeply reported article in the New York Times delves into the story of creating the 11th Street Bridge Park linking Anacostia with adjacent neighborhoods. The piece features LISC and our DC team’s integral and longtime involvement in a community-centered project that has aimed, from its inception, to nurture connection, growth and vitality without displacing Black residents in the process.

Tackling “the Worst Housing Crisis Since the Great Depression” with Local Strategies and Big Picture Innovation: Q+A with Denise Scott

In a wide-ranging Q+A with Philanthropy News Digest, LISC President Denise Scott describes how the organization has pivoted and refined its strategies to support communities in the face of market shifts, climate disasters, a pandemic and countless systemic barriers to equity. What we need, says Scott, is “creative financing guided by collaboration with local people who are working toward lasting solutions—if we are going to really advance equity in this challenging time.”

Double Down on ‘Local’ to Empower Families and Communities

From pandemic relief to racial equity, success is as dependent on a strong social infrastructure in communities as it is on the dollars that flow through it, writes LISC President Denise Scott, in a new commentary. “To support just and resilient communities, we must invest in the capacity of place-based organizations to plan, execute, measure, adjust and sustain community development gains.”
