How the Federal Reserve and LISC are Supporting Families with Heirs' Property

Natavia lives in the 800 square-foot family house her grandmother bought on the east side of Jacksonville, Florida almost 80 years ago. Natavia is the third generation to call the property home. “I value the house for the memories,” she said. “I grew up spending the summers with my grandma, hearing the stories of her walking to work way on the other side of town, just to have a home.”

Investing In A Future For Us All: LISC’s 2023 Annual Report is here!

It was a year of new leadership, new vision and renewed commitment. We invested an extraordinary $2.4 billion and doubled down on our work to create affordable housing, catalyze financial opportunity and promote climate resiliency. And so much more.

LISC, Enterprise Community Partners and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York have published What's Possible: Investing NOW for Prosperous, Sustainable Neighborhoods. With contributions from LISC green and financing experts, the volume is a timely and crucial guidebook to equitable green investing and community development and especially timely on the heels of the historic $20 billion in federal investment to expand access to clean energy and climate solutions.
