LIIF mobilizes capital and partners to achieve equity, well-being, and opportunity for people and communities.
LIIF is honored to announce a transformative donation from MacKenzie Scott in recognition of our high-impact, outcomes-driven community development work. LIIF is proud to be among the stellar organizations selected by Ms. Scott that are driving change by tackling our nation’s largest and most complex challenges.
LIIF joins the millions of Americans and people across the world who are speaking out and standing up to say: Black lives matter.
LIIF is immediately deploying $1.4 million in grants through our Child Care Emergency Relief Effort for family child care small businesses in New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area and Washington, D.C. The relief funding will go directly to family child care business owners to cover staff salaries, rent and other operating expenses.
LIIF joins with Enterprise Community Partners, Housing Partnership Network, Local Initiatives Support Corporation, National Housing Trust, and Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future to strongly oppose HUD’s termination of the 2015 Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule. This is a dramatic step back that substantially weakens the nation’s fair housing responsibilities.
LIIF CEO Daniel A. Nissenbaum released a statement highlighting LIIF’s concerns about the new rule.
How do CDFIs stack up as responders in a potential economic downturn? Kimberly Latimer-Nelligan draws lessons from the Great Recession and outlines federal policies that will be critical to getting capital into communities.
As lawmakers consider additional relief and stimulus measures, we ask that Congress provide $50 billion in emergency funding to ensure the resilience of child care providers through the pandemic and beyond.
As of June 15, LIIF’s San Francisco office address will be 49 Stevenson St. Suite 300, San Francisco, CA 94105. Our phone and fax numbers will remain the same.
