Leveraging Resources for Community Change

Community development is a dramatic example of what can happen when the goals and resources of the public, private and nonprofit sectors align. Since 1980, LISC has been able to combine the vision and the capacity of community-based organizations with the resources and expertise of the private sector, and the indispensable underpinning of supportive public policies to transform and rebuild low-income neighborhoods into healthy, sustainable communities of choice across our nation. In the past 30 years, LISC has invested more than $11.1 billion for community development activities that build affordable homes, retail and community facilities and create new jobs. More than 3,100 donors, investors and lenders have contributed to LISC.

MetLife Foundation was created in 1976 by MetLife to continue its longstanding tradition of contributions and community involvement. The goal is to empower people to lead healthy, productive lives and strengthen communities. Underlying the Foundation’s programs is a focus on education at all ages and a commitment to increasing access and opportunity. MetLife Foundation helped launch the Community Safety Initiative with a $1 million challenge grant in 1994. Its long-time sponsorship of the MetLife Foundation Community-Police Partnership Awards and leadership in support of this Resource Center have helped thousands of practitioners improve the safety of their communities.
