CHALLENGE

Although housing is at LISC’s core, we understand that commercial activity drives growth and opportunity for community residents. Too often, investing in commercial real estate displaces local residents instead of empowering them to build up their communities.  Financial stability is critical to an individual well being and the strength of a community.

OPPORTUNITY

We invest in commercial real estate projects that support accessible jobs and reduce income disparities for the community. Economic activity creates a nexus of power and protection for a city, especially when the population is involved.

IMPACT

By investing in diverse developers and ensuring commercial development is done in collaboration with the community, more residents will have access to quality employment, opportunities to expand local businesses, necessary industrial resources, health services, and more.

 

We invest in:

  • Mixed-use developments

  • Healthy grocery & food stores

  • Retail providing opportunity or services to the community
