LISC Jacksonville

LISC Jacksonville was founded in 1999 to provide resources, practitioners, and advocates for community development initiatives. In supporting the increase of affordable homes, 24 homes have been sold in 2009 and construction has begun for 30 more homes in 2010. The nonprofit’s pilot program, Empowering People Inspiring Change (EPIC) Communities, works within Jacksonville’s underserved communities in the Eastside and Northside to stimulate economic development, improve access to quality education, and expand investment in residential and commercial units. The nonprofit hopes the city will invest $2 million in grants, in addition to the $900,000 already granted by The Jessie Ball duPont Fund and The Community Foundation for the EPIC Communities program’s success.
