Houston LISC

Houston LISC equips communities with the capital and other resources, strategy and know-how to create good places to live, work, raise families and do business. We mobilize private and public support to provide community development organizations with:

  • Funding – loans, grants and equity investments
  • Knowledge – best practices, technical assistance and training
  • Partners – access to national and local expertise

Since 1989, our investment of over $243 million into Houston neighborhoods has leveraged more than $637 million from private and public sources. Together with our partners, we have created over:

  • 7,607  homes
  • 1.4 million square feet of commercial, community and charter school space
  • Nine youth athletic playing fields
  • Six Financial Opportunity Centers that serve more than 3,000 people annually and have placed more than 2,000 people in jobs since 2010

Our Role

We convene partners, build coalitions, invest funds, and support community revitalization. This comprehensive approach is captured through LISC’s “Building Sustainable Communities” approach. Through several programs, we supported efforts on initiatives to create quality housing, better education, more job choices, safer streets, improved personal health, and new economic opportunities for Houston communities.
