Foster Safe Healthy Environments

Redeveloping communities need to offer residents an environment that enhances their health, enjoyment and overall sense of well-being. This includes everything from tree-shaded walkways and safe playing fields to community clinics and environmentally sound design. This goal complements the other four as LISC works with its partners to create communities that are good places to live, work and raise a family.

Parks and ball fields can serve as tremendous community assets because they offer opportunities for recreation, education and relaxation that contribute to the local quality of life, especially for young people. The NFL Youth Football Fund Grassroots Program, a partnership of the National Football League Youth Football Fund (NFL YFF) and LISC, provides non-profit, neighborhood organizations, middle schools and high schools with financing and technical assistance to improve the quality, safety, and accessibility of youth football fields.
