Stimulate Economic Activity

Economic activity which connects our targeted neighborhoods to the regional economy and beyond is another important goal. Working with community development organizations, LISC supports small business and commercial corridor revitalization as well as larger scale retail projects that help integrate these communities into the larger economy.

Improved neighborhoods strengthen an area's economy and employment base, stimulating prosperity and enriching the quality of life of its residents and neighboring communities. LISC support has been instrumental in local economic development projects, including the Larkin U Building and Asbury Delaware Church.

And once there we connect community organizations, business leaders and policy makers to the expertise and capital they need to grow.
