Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) Milwaukee
LISC Milwaukee works to transform distressed urban neighborhoods into healthyLISC logo communities of choice and opportunity by mobilizing corporate and philanthropic support of local neighborhoods.  LISC takes a comprehensive approach to building sustainable communities in neighborhoods such as Amani, Clarke Square, Harambee, Layton Boulevard West, Lindsay Heights and Washington Park by working with residents to develop neighborhood plans and implementing the Neighborhood Leadership Institute.


On April 15, 2015 LISC will host the Milwaukee Awards for Neighborhood Development Innovation (known as the MANDIs) to celebrate the “good news” of successful efforts to revitalize neighborhoods and strengthen the community.  Finalists are selected from public nominations by a 40-member, independent, cross-sector volunteer committee.  Sponsored by U.S. Bank, in partnership with LISC Milwaukee, the MANDIs recognize individuals, organizations, and corporations who are improving conditions in Milwaukee’s central city neighborhoods.
