Nigel Roberts Takes the Helm at LISC Memphis

LISC has named a community development leader with deep experience in the public, private and nonprofit sectors to expand its work in Memphis. P. Nigel Roberts will lead investment and program strategies that build equity and opportunity in underserved Memphis communities.

Ruth Jones Nichols, Formerly of HUD, Joins LISC as Executive Vice President to Lead Nationwide Program Activity

Dr. Jones Nichols will oversee LISC’s 37 metro-area program offices, Rural LISC and all its national programs. In addition to her federal leadership experience, she brings to LISC decades of experience working at the local level on critical issues related to housing, jobs, racial and gender equity, education and food access.

Frontline Communities Can’t Wait: A Blueprint for Building Sustainable Neighborhoods Now

In an op-ed for “Smart Cities Dive”, LISC CEO Michael T. Pugh, and Enterprise Community Partners CEO Shaun Donovan, weigh in on how climate and community develop are fundamentally part of the same whole—the premise of a new book, “What’s Possible: Investing NOW for Prosperous, Sustainable Neighborhoods”, just co-published by their two organizations with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. And for investments in green community development to be successful, they argue, the work must be guided by strategies that prioritize community input and involvement.
