About Us

The community development movement and Houston LISC were born in Houston in 1989. Houston LISC assists Community Development Corporations (CDCs) in their efforts to transform distressed neighborhoods into healthy communities.

LISC consults with these community-based groups to ensure that they form appropriate business plans, create solid financing strategy, and secure the right human and capital resources before new projects are launched.

Moreover, we are able to help the CDCs develop plans that look holistically at their neighborhoods, integrating their needs for residential, health, education, recreation and commercial developments.

We help them identify their neighborhoods’ most pressing needs, identify the best way to meet those needs, and then work hand-in-hand with the CDCs and their partners to execute the plans.

Today, CDCs are actively working in distressed neighborhoods throughout Houston. In support of this effort, Houston LISC has invested more than $28 million in the neighborhoods in which CDCs work.
