LISC + Lowe’s: A COVID Response That Buoyed 2,782 Small Businesses

Over the past 10 months, a $55 million commitment from Lowe’s enabled LISC to deploy emergency relief and resiliency grants to nearly 2,782 small businesses, mostly minority- and women-owned enterprises, in rural and urban communities all across the country. That translates into thousands of livelihoods, jobs and business ecosystems still intact through the economic fallout of the pandemic.

“A Heart for Responding to Challenges” and a Commitment to Small Business Recovery: Q&A with Janice Dupré of Lowe’s

Janice Dupré is executive vice president of human resources for Lowe’s. In the interview that follows, she talks about what motivated Lowe’s to make its extraordinary $55 million commitment for small business relief grants, and she describes why the company intentionally prioritized small businesses that face barriers to capital access, including those located in rural communities and led by diverse owners, including women.

Justice for George Floyd

The historic murder and manslaughter convictions of Derek Chauvin are a welcome signal of justice for George Floyd, for Black communities long victimized by police violence, and for everyone who wants to live in an authentically safe, just and equitable America. The work of building an anti-racist justice system and healing communities, though, has far to go. LISC is committed to it for the long haul.
