At Virginia LISC, we believe that all residents deserve to shape and live in thriving neighborhoods of choice and opportunity.
For 29 years, LISC has been investing in and supporting communities in the Greater Richmond Region. This work has resulted in $30.7 million raised locally, leveraging investments of $639 million for Virginia communities. This has been possible because of the many incredible partners and supporters we have had, fueling us to continue this important work.
Here is a quick look at Virginia LISC’s impact in Richmond and Petersburg in 2018:
- our three Financial Opportunity Centers served more than 445 residents working to attain family financial stability;
- we awarded $150,000 in grants and one-on-one small business coaching to 12 small businesses to revitalize two neighborhood business districts;
- we financed $8.4 million in loans to advance housing and mixed-use projects;
- and we provided $14 million in mission-driven lending to support economic development projects in the communities we serve.
