U.S. News & LISC: On Bridging the Vaccine Distribution Gap

A group of experts, including Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for Health Programs, gathered for a webinar hosted by U.S. News & World Report, to offer insight and solutions to tackling disparities in COVID vaccination distribution.

‘Who are you? What are you going to do?’ The Role of Trust in Small Business Recovery

When Covid-19 hit the Bronx, NY, a longtime LISC partner, Mosholu Preservation Corp. (MPC), leveraged its hard-won role as a trusted community resource to help small businesses survive lockdown. Now, with support from LISC and MetLife Foundation, MPC is providing the technical assistance and financial resources entrepreneurs need to move on from a year-plus of restrictions and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.

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.
