In Forbes, Props for LISC’s Work With ESPN & Under Armour to Make Space for Play

An in-depth article in Forbes looks at how ESPN is putting its weight behind programs to boost sports and play in under-resourced places, and calls out LISC’s innovative RePlay partnership with ESPN and Under Armour. Since the collaboration began, we’ve helped 12 community organizations and schools revitalize play spaces and other facilities that promote physical and emotional wellbeing for hundreds of young people in Baltimore neighborhoods with high rates of poverty.

LISC Turns 40!

And we've got a lot to celebrate: $20 billion in total investments, record impact in 2018, a 20-year collaboration with the NFL Foundation, and the list goes on. At a gala event in New York City, LISC honors the indispensable work of our partner organizations and the two-decade service of our board chair, former Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin.

In an in-depth article for The Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law, attorneys David Goldstein and Jason Labate offer a case study of the Joint Operating Entity NYC (JOE NYC), which LISC has supported from its inception.
