CHALLENGE

Cities are faced with numerous challenges like lack of affordable housing, rising healthcare costs, economic inequality, and more.

 

Combatting all of these challenges require unique investment from public and private capital. Combining and making effective use of this capital present an additional set of challenges and nuances. 

OPPORTUNITY

LISC City fund strategy starts with understanding the biggest challenges for municipal leaders and the communities they serve. We then look at local resources available, employ our appropriate teams, engage the local community, and identify potential investment partners. We help cities leverage existing program dollars with private and philanthropic capital to increase the impact and results of those efforts. There is no one solution for every city or challenge. 


Because we have a strong local office network, we can often combine federal and state dollars into programs that work hand in hand with investments to support our mission work.

IMPACT

Leveraging city fund dollars and private capital to make more profound and  impactful outcomes allows more residents to live healthy lives and advance economically. We
