This month, LISC opened its newest metro office in Upstate South Carolina.

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.”
