An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts. It was rejuvenating to see old and new friends who share our passion for open streets and are working tirelessly to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities across the world.

“Four Years, $13 Million and Dozens of Hands”: MarketWatch Dives Deep Into LISC’s Work in D.C.

A deeply-reported MarketWatch article unpacks the incredibly complex process of creating affordable housing by profiling an apartment complex in Washington D.C. that LISC has helped preserve. Extensive interviews with our CEO, LISC D.C. executive director Ramon Jacobson and senior program officer Adam Kent are at the heart of this emblematic story of how we bring together private and public capital partners with developers and residents, and work to empower people to stay in the places they call home. A must read.

U.S. Treasury Awards $60 Million in New Market Tax Credits to LISC

The Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund, part of the U.S. Treasury department, announced the recipients of $3.5 billion in New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) allocations for 2019. $60 million was allocated to LISC’s subsidiary, the New Markets Support Company. Since its inception, NMSC has harnessed $1 billion in tax credits to offer flexible capital for projects that benefit low-income communities across the count--projects ranging from Cincinatti’s CityLink Center, home to 15 social service agencies, to a health clinic-plus-grocery store in Brockton, MA to the public library in Petersburg, VA.

We’re Not Spending Nearly Enough to Reduce Homelessness

Ricardo Flores, ED of LISC San Diego, published an emphatic op-ed in the Voice of San Diego about the desperate need for more local and state spending to alleviate homelessness. As in nearly every part of the country, San Diego’s homeless population is growing, and last year suffered a Hepatitis A outbreak. “Today’s homelessness crisis has the potential to worsen into a catastrophic public health disaster,” warned Flores, explaining that preventive strategies, housing and support services demand much greater investment to head off a larger crisis.
