- Who We Are
- What We Do
Greater Kansas City LISC partners with residents and stakeholders to coordinate and invest resources that grow community pride and revitalize neighborhoods into healthy, sustainable communities. We accomplish this by fostering partnerships, leveraging investments, creating systemic changes and transforming the environment.
The Assistant Program Officer will report directly to the Financial Opportunities Program Officer, and will be a part of Greater Kansas City LISC’s overall efforts to invest in strengthening low-income communities and work closely with the staff to ensure that all relevant programmatic linkages are made.
The Kansas City Catalytic Urban Redevelopment (KC-CUR) initiative is currently one of Kansas City’s primary strategies for scaling up redevelopment on the city’s east side, focusing on both the People and the Place. Now, thanks in part to funding from the City and Hall Family Foundation, some significant milestones are being achieved to accelerate the strategy implementation. A Project Manager will be hired to be the primary coordinator, strategist, and advocate for KC-CUR and an RFP has been issued to solicit proposals from consultants to complete this Revitalization Scenario for the 31st and Troost Priority Area.
It’s official! LISC has been tapped to manage an $18.5 million investment from Facebook in partnership with community groups and the city of East Palo Alto to create quality affordable housing in Silicon Valley where Facebook is headquartered. LISC plans to quadruple the Catalyst Fund, as it is known, to $75 million to address regional challenges such as affordable housing and access to economic opportunity for local residents.
