Rethinking Ways to Get Capital to Small Businesses

The pandemic has prodded state and local governments to think hard and act quickly to move public money into shoring up the small business sector. An article in Next City looks at how new public-private partnerships—particularly ones engaging CDFIs, like the LISC-managed NY Forward Loan Fund—are paving the way to make equitable small business development part of a new normal.

Partnership Means Being Prepared

In the era of Covid-19, connected ecosystems are paying off for small businesses struggling to keep their doors open. Which proves just how critical LISC’s ongoing work to build relationships that support economic development really is, in times of crisis and beyond.

For Six Years Running, LISC is Recognized as an ImpactAssets 50

LISC has been named one of the ImpactAssets 50, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. LISC is one of seven community development financial institutions (CDFIs) that were selected for this year’s IA 50, reflecting the critical role CDFIs have played during the COVID-19 pandemic.
