Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is the country’s largest community development organization, helping resident-led, community-based groups transform distressed communities and neighborhoods into healthy ones, with good places to live, do business, work, and raise families. Established in 1980, LISC has worked in over 300 urban and rural areas, investing more than $4 billion of mostly private funds in the work of over 2,200 local nonprofits. With this support, these groups have built 110,000 quality homes, helped make neighborhoods safer and livable, and created 14 million square feet of commercial, retail, child care, educational, and youth development facilities, bringing markets and jobs back to inner city and rural America.
