Where We Work

Since 2006, LISC has launched two major projects—the Great Indy Neighborhoods Initiative and the Sustainable Communities Initiative—designed to spur growth, improvement, opportunity, and economic viability throughout Indianapolis. With these initiatives, LISC has helped foster collaboration between neighbors, community organizations, government leaders, and businesses, resulting in an improved quality of life for the neighborhoods we support. We continue to expand our efforts to include additional neighborhoods, but our goal remains the same: to drive comprehensive, sustainable development.
