National Equity Fund Turns 30
In 1987, LISC formed National Equity Fund. Since then, NEF has played a key role in revitalizing communities and empowering individuals. Today the program supports 90 percent of all affordable rental housing developments as well as generating more than 140,000 jobs annually.
