In 1991 LISC opened an office in Rhode Island. Since that time we have invested nearly $300 million in neighborhoods across our state, helping to create more than 7,500 affordable homes and supporting the development of more than 2 million square feet of commercial, child care, educational and community space.
LISC mobilizes corporate, government and philanthropic support to invest in locally defined community development projects and activities through:
- Loans, grants and equity investments
- Targeted training and technical assistance
- Local, statewide and national policy support
At LISC Rhode Island, we are committed to building strong neighborhoods and healthy communities where individuals, businesses and families can thrive. Our strategies – investing in real estate, increasing family income & wealth, stimulating economic development, improving access to quality education and supporting healthy environments and lifestyles – take shape when we bring residents and community leaders together to shape the neighborhoods where they live.
