In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
