Resilient Communities, Resilient Families Expansion Plans


In 2015, LISC will begin be expanding the Resilient Communities, Resilient Families initiative to new communities, with the goal of selecting new communities in 2016.  LISC will also begin offering trainings on the RCRF model throughout Massachusetts to assist communities already underway or thinking about comprehensive community development.

We will expand to places where we can find funders who will join us in long term, multi-year funding commitments to neighborhoods and where local partners are excited about our comprehensive approach to community development.  Below are some opportunities to learn more about our expansion plans:
