LISC has mobilized its staff and network of 2,500 local partners to support the people and communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic. The money we raise is:

  • Providing grants to women- and minority-owned small businesses that are the backbone of local economies
  • Delivering flexible loan capital to small businesses and nonprofits to pay rent, utilities, payroll, debt, emergency cash, and other operational costs
  • Supporting thousands of community-based organizations that serve clients in need
  • Delivering tech support and infrastructure to help residents and enterprises access work, school, commerce, and social connection
