#OpenStreets15 Preview: Building Equity in New Brunswick

Meeting at the intersection of jobs, health and housing

Shovels hit the ground this week in Washington, D.C.'s Benning Heights neighborhood as a new development that will bring affordable apartments, health services and job training to low-income residents moved forward, thanks in part to $34 million from the Healthy Futures Fund. The Conway Center, developed by So Others Might Eat (SOME), is the largest investment to date by the fund—which is a partnership among LISC, Morgan Stanley and The Kresge Foundation to help connect good housing and good health care in disadvantaged communities.

The nuts and bolts of revitalizing Detroit

In the wake of the national housing crisis and Detroit's bankruptcy, leaders of three community development corporations (CDCs) discuss the changing landscape of their work in an article for Model D. As Detroit's funds for housing, economic development and public safety have dwindled, CDCs play an even larger role in improving neighborhoods and helping people stay in their homes. And resources such as zero-percent interest loans for home repair, made possible with LISC's support, help fill the gaps.

States help charter schools focus funding on kids

Is it possible to put more dollars into charter school classrooms without increasing the cost to taxpayers? A new study by LISC and Charter School Advisors on the charter school bond market says it is. Three states have developed programs that extend their strong credit ratings to qualified schools so they can raise low-cost capital to build and expand. That saves schools millions of dollars in borrowing costs that are then redirected to meet the needs of teachers and kids. LISC's Reena Abraham noted that academic performance is a key indicator of credit quality. "Good schools have proven to be good investments."
