For nearly 30 years, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation in Los Angeles has worked with local leaders to invest in housing, health, education, public safety and employment - all basic needs that must be tackled at once so that progress in one is not undermined by neglect in another.

LISC brings together key local players to take on pressing challenges and incubate new solutions. With them, we help develop smarter public policy. Our toolkit is extensive. It includes loans, grants, equity investments and on-the-ground experience in some of the neediest neighborhoods.
