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.
