LISC Launches Pilot Program with Wells Fargo Grant to Help Small Businesses Build Disaster Resilience

Climate disasters—combined with the lingering economic stress of the pandemic—present immediate challenges to the survival of small businesses and the outlook for long-term recovery and growth. With the generous support of the Wells Fargo Foundation, LISC is developing our Small Business Resiliency Network to ensure businesses can innovate, expand, and thrive.

In Praise of CDFIs, and Why We Need Them Now More Than Ever

LISC COO Annie Donovan knows her way around Community Development Financial Institutions. In the blog that follows, she offers an indispensable primer on how CDFIs work, the diverse ways and places they operate, and why they are imperative to building equitable and inclusive communities and helping close our country's racial wealth and opportunity gaps.

Honoring Juneteenth with a Historic (and Delicious) Cookie

LISC's work on behalf of the racial equity goals that Juneteenth stands for have taught us many things. Like how supporting small, Black-owned businesses is a critical component of helping close racial wealth and opportunity gaps. And that celebrating African-cultural cultural inheritances, like the beloved Southern tea cake, is a beautiful way to mark this weekend's holiday and Black history and creativity.
