About Us

Greater Kansas City LISC is a civic leader for community development. In partnership with residents and stakeholders, we coordinate and invest resources that grow community pride and revitalize neighborhoods into healthy, sustainable communities. We accomplish this by fostering partnerships, leveraging investments, creating systemic changes and transforming the environment. For more than three decades LISC has assembled private and public resources and directed them to locally-defined priorities. Our unique structure enables local organizations to access national resources and expertise, and provides opportunities for our funding partners to leverage their investments to achieve impacts that are truly remarkable.

Since 1981, LISC has provided over $116 million in loans and equity investments in the Kansas City area and over $24 million in grants, leveraging more than $621 million in total development in Kansas City’s urban core, including 5,881 new and rehabbed homes and apartments, minor home repairs to 5,393 homes and more than $21 million in bridge loans to educational programs.
