Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Indianapolis helps transform distressed communities and neighborhoods into healthy ones. By mobilizing corporate, government and philanthropic support, LISC provides financing, technical advice, management and program consulting, training and policy support to neighborhoods. We help neighborhood-based organizations organize, identify results they aim to achieve, create plans and then implement them—a process we call quality-of-life planning.
LISC Indianapolis aims to improve life expectancy, increase economic mobility and close the racial equity gap by:
- Strengthening existing alliances while building new collaborations to empower people and transform places
- Developing leadership and capacity of partners to advance our work together
- Investing in businesses, housing, and other community infrastructure to catalyze economic, health, safety and educational mobility for residents
- Driving local, regional and national policy and system changes that foster broadly shared prosperity and well-being
