Investing in Immigrant Communities = Investing in America

A new LISC white paper examines the ways current federal immigration policy is affecting immigrant residents across the country, and how our nonprofit partners are responding to meet the needs, and address the fear, of immigrants and their families. In the blog below, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and David Greenberg, our head of research and lead author of the report, weigh in on why supporting the wellbeing and prosperity of immigrant communities—and of the agencies that serve them—is in every American’s best interest.

From Vacant to Valuable: Four New Communities Eligible for Replay Grants

ESPN, Under Armour and LISC have announced that four new communities are eligible for grants through the Replay initiative to transform vacant lots into community recreation hubs. The program, which is in its second year, will award a total of $430,000 to help neighborhood groups in Atlanta, Detroit, Oakland, and Toledo ensure that sports and recreation are accessible to all residents. As LISC’s senior program director for Sports & Recreation, Beverly Smith, stated, “Our on-the-ground experience in local communities coupled with the resources and expertise of ESPN and Under Armour has been a highly successful formula for creating useful recreational spaces.”
