Neighborhood Building

Virginia LISC constructs in neighborhoods using two different strategies: comprehensive building and targeted initiatives. Both of these approaches can be seen in neighborhoods and communities throughout Richmond and Petersburg. In the comprehensive approach, Virginia LISC targets entire neighborhoods and works with partners and residents to address the needs of that neighborhood and make changes, as necessary. Virginia LISC’s targeted initiatives focus on one specific project in a community that will greatly impact residents. The Supporting East End Entrepreneur Development (SEED) Program and the Petersburg Library construction financing both exemplify targeted initiatives.
