Local Initiative Support Corporation

The Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) invests in overlapping program areas that reach into every corner of community life. Their approach is comprehensive, effective and—most important—rooted in what neighbors want for themselves, their families and the places they call home.

Housing is where LISC started. And it’s still the cornerstone of their mission, even as their vision has expanded to include catalyzing opportunity for people and places in many ways: through education, good jobs, health, safety and economic development. LISC continues to make qual­ity, affordable housing available to low-income and vulnerable residents—from seniors to veterans to the formerly homeless—in underserved communities.
