Setting the Stage for an Equitable Small Business Recovery

Since the onset of the pandemic, LISC has equipped 16,000 small business owners with relief and resilience grants. But to foster opportunity and long-term resiliency for all entrepreneurs who confront entrenched inequities, including people of color, women, immigrants and refugees, and people with lower incomes and wealth, we need a robust universe of small business “ecosystems”: the network of capital, services, and supports that every enterprise needs to get on its feet and grow.

Investing in Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure

As part of an ongoing blog series, LISC’s Anna Smukowski looks at the way LISC is advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a range of activities supported by LISC Impact Notes, including investments that support Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.

Care First, Jails Last

Los Angeles County has selected LISC to implement key parts of an extraordinary initiative to provide alternatives to incarceration. The $61 million, two-year pilot is working to divert people from jail and instead offer services to help overcome housing instability and mental health and substance abuse challenges. It will also provide a model for how to turn the page on mass incarceration.
