Dismantling Structural Racism in Community Development Finance

In an opinion piece for ImpactAlpha, LISC COO Annie Donovan draws on the expertise she honed as head of the CDFI Fund to illustrate the layered ways that BIPOC community development entities are locked out of federal tax credit allocations and other resources. "The disproportionate results reflect the same deeply seated structural barriers that prevent minority-owned enterprises from accessing credit in other parts of the economy," she writes, explaining that Congress, and the rest of us, must help remedy this inequity. 

LISC CEO: Investing in Black-owned Businesses is Good for America

In a lively Q&A with Tony Lawson, co-founder of ShoppeBlack, LISC's CEO Maurice A. Jones talks about the many levels of impact that investing in black-owned small businesses can have on our country's wellbeing. The intentional effort that created the racial health and wealth gap can only be undone through intentional effort, he explains—a remedy that ultimately boosts everyone's standard of living.

An Accurate Census Count is Imperative for America. Here’s Why.

Matt Josephs, LISC SVP and head of the organization’s policy team, makes the urgent case for why a fair and accurate census count is so important for the health and wellbeing of our communities. Anything short of that undermines equity and thwarts our democratic process. Every one of us, he writes, has a role to play in making sure the census is successful.
