About Us


Virginia LISC helps community-based organizations transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy communities of choice and opportunity.

For more than 26 years, Virginia LISC’s work with community organizations to revitalize underserved Richmond-area neighborhoods has led to physical improvements, safer streets, increased property values and highly engaged residents. We support community development organizations with grants, loans and expertise to help them construct businesses, community centers and affordable homes in low and moderate income neighborhoods.
