Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.

The First Opportunity Zones Playbook is Here

We're excited to share the first installment of the LISC Opportunity Zones Playbook series, “Navigating the Opportunity Zones: Community Partners.” This playbook is geared to the people and organizations committed to community revitalization and shared prosperity for all residents.
