Event Description

Many new programs and strategies for helping low-income families to increase their financial security are being developed and tested in Connecticut and in other states.   The Collaborative provides the opportunity for a broad group of stakeholders including consumers; policy makers; representatives from non-profit and public agencies, foundations, banks and credit unions, research organizations, local and state government  to work together to expand asset building policies and programs for low-income families across the state.  
Jonathan Mintz, Commissioner of Consumer Affairs for New York City and co-chair of Cities for Financial Empowerment, will give the keynote address.  Commissioner Mintz will highlight emerging program models in New York and other cities.  The agenda will also include a “State of the State of Asset Building in Connecticut”; roundtables on topics of interest; and a luncheon organized by region to encourage regional networking. 
If you would like an invitation sent to someone else in your agency or another colleague, please send their email address.  We look forward to seeing you in November.

The Evolution of LISC’s Response to COVID-19 and the Country’s Racial Reckoning

Last week, LISC announced the launch of our newest and most ambition initiative: Project 10X, which aims to help close our country’s racial health, wealth and opportunity gaps. In many ways, Project 10X is an evolution of the intensive and unprecedented emergency relief work we began at the outset of the pandemic: supporting Black and Brown communities, and minority- and women-run small businesses, to survive and transcend the crisis.

LISC CEO and President Clinton on Homeownership and Closing the Racial Wealth Gap

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined President Bill Clinton, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms to talk solutions to the housing crisis in a post-pandemic landscape on a Clinton Foundation video-streamed panel, "Affordable Housing and (Re)building the American Dream." Homeownership, Jones noted, is central to closing the racial health, wealth and opportunity gaps that keep the nation from realizing its potential, and bold investment and systems change, as with LISC's new initiative Project 10X, are imperative to closing those gaps.

What Recipe Brings You and Your Family Comfort?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. We hope these Reflections from the Field will be a source of inspiration and insight for us all.
