Bay Area Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is the local office of a national organization.  Bay Area LISC works to make neighborhood dreams a reality by working with cities, residents, nonprofit organizations, and key public and private partners to help neighbors build good places to live, do business, work, play, and raise families.

With over 30 years of experience on the ground, national knowledge-sharing networks through our parent organization, and strong public, private, philanthropic, nonprofit and community partnerships, Bay Area LISC is uniquely positioned to support local community-driven change as a capacity builder, convener, and advocate for low-income communities. And, our numbers speak for themselves. Our investment of over $600 million has leveraged $3.26 billion from private and public sources for community development efforts. Since 1981, we have created over 

  • 12,000 affordable homes and apartments created or preserved; 
  • 2 million square feet of community space including grocery stores, schools, commercial, and industrial space; 
  • 1700 jobs created and placed over 600 individuals in jobs
  • 660 businesses, among many other successes. 
  • 2,266 clients served with integrated financial services

Our investments in training, technical assistance and organizational support have contributed to community development efforts well beyond those numbers. As a result of LISC’s work with community development organizations, thousands of low-income families and individuals have access to safe, affordable housing as well as the goods, services and jobs they need to thrive.
