Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) "helps resident-led, community-based development organizations transform distressed communities and neighborhoods into healthy ones – good places to live, do business, work and raise families. By providing capital, technical expertise, training and information, LISC supports the development of local leadership and the creation of affordable housing, commercial, industrial and community facilities, businesses and jobs." [1]

"Founded in 1979, LISC has become the nation's largest community development support organization. With 30 urban programs and a national rural program operating in 36 states, we deliver capital from corporations, foundations, individuals and the government to our network of hundreds of community organizations across the country. This unique "on the ground" presence enables LISC to work closely with our community development organizations to identify local priorities and challenges, thereby creating a tailored plan to address each community's needs. Headquartered in New York City, National LISC offers nationwide program initiatives in areas such as affordable housing preservation, community safety and educational facilities development." [2]
