Welcome to Connecticut Statewide LISC!

Connecticut Statewide LISC is one of over 30 local programs of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), the nation’s largest community development support organization. Our mission is to help community residents create healthy and sustainable places of choice and opportunity – good places to live, work, raise children and conduct business. We mobilize corporate, government, individual donor and philanthropic support and invest these resources into the projects, programs and initiatives that build on the assets and address the challenges of the towns and cities throughout Connecticut.

LISC President & CEO Maurice Jones in The New York Times

Maurice Jones, the new President & CEO of LISC, has been busy! Read his response to a New York Times article examining U.S. Census data that shows an uptick in prosperity across the country. Good news, he says, but there's still much to be done, and anti-poverty efforts must tackle multiple fronts, all at once, to make a difference for low-income Americans. Also, read his reflections from his first month on the job in this blog post.

Making the Case for Affordable Housing

LISC led a workshop on "making the case for affordable housing" at the annual conference of the Connecticut Housing Coalition on September 29, 2105 at the Connecticut Convention Center.

Widespread research demonstrates that affordable housing enables families to thrive while also supporting healthy local economies. Attendees heard the experiences of housing groups in Waterbury, Norfolk and Ridgefield on approachesthey have taken to raise awareness and advance affordable housing development in their cities and towns.
