Where We Work

Duluth LISC and the At Home in Duluth Collaborative work primarily in five of Duluth's older neighborhoods: East and Central Hillside (blue on the map below), Lincoln Park (pink), West Duluth (green) and Morgan Park (orange). Almost all of the census tracts within these neighborhoods meet the guidelines for Community Development Block Grant eligibility. They are characterized by relatively older housing stock, lower median incomes, and greater diversity than Duluth as a whole.


Housing characteristics in core communities:

  Population (2010) Housing Units % Houses Built 1939 or prior Owner Occupied
 Hillside 11,396  6,665 56% 17.6%
 Lincoln Park  6,304  3,018 65% 44.4%
 West Duluth  7,737  3,673 65% 59.5%
 Morgan Park 1,852     890 51% 54.0%
 Duluth 86,265 38,208 45% 56.5%

Duluth LISC also supports the redevelopment of Downtown Duluth, particularly with projects within the focus area of the Duluth East Downtown, Hillside and Waterfront Charrette, and projects which support the integration of Duluth's medical anchor institutions, St. Luke's and Essentia Health, into the surrounding Hillside neighborhood.

Duluth LISC's supports affordable housing production and preservation thrughout Greater Duluth (Duluth, Hermantown and Proctor).
