“Giving More of Our Neighbors Access to the Opportunities Homeownership Affords”: Q+A with Umpqua Bank’s Randy Choy

LISC is working with Umpqua Bank to tackle the systemic roadblocks that prevent many communities of color and rural residents from buying a home. In a Q+A with Umpqua Bank’s Randy Choy, we learn why expanding fair access to quality homeownership opportunities is so important to the bank, and to Choy.

How the LIFT Act Can Make Homeownership, and Strong Communities, a Reality for More Americans

In an op-ed for The Virginian-Pilot, LISC Virginia executive director Jane Ferrara lays out the ways the proposed LIFT Act could make homeownership, at 20-year, fixed rate mortgages, accessible to first-time, first-generation buyers—the very people who are often edged out of the American Dream. The legislation, in partnership with home-buying programs like the ones LISC leads, Ferrara writes, can help "bridge the racial wealth gap as well as the gap between dreams and reality for the next generation of aspiring homeowners."

The Difference a Ride Can Make

An article in QCity Metro describes the life-changing impact of LISC and Uber's partnership, the Health Access Fund, offering free rides to medical and other appointments that contribute to health and wellbeing. In Charlotte, NC, as in other cities where the Fund operates, rides are coordinated through locally rooted groups like Care Ring, a 70-year-old community organization that since March has been able to offer 2,600 rides to primary and specialist care appointments, food access points, case management meetings and much more.
