LISC Launches New Office in Upstate South Carolina

This month, LISC opened its newest metro office in Upstate South Carolina. Long-time economic development leader Julie Franklin will bring her community development expertise honed in Greenville and Spartanburg to the role of executive director of the LISC Upstate SC program. The new office will focus on comprehensive, long-term investments in affordable housing, businesses and jobs. “As a whole, the Upstate is enjoying strong growth, but not everyone has been able to participate in our economic expansion,” said Franklin. “To succeed in a globally competitive marketplace, we need to build up our local talent, strengthen our neighborhoods and fuel a broadly shared prosperity that allows everyone to thrive.”
