Mattapan United, a community coalition sponsored by LISC's Resilient Communities, Resilient Families Initiative, has been awarded the very prestigious Third Sector New England Inclusion Initiative grant. The funding provided by Third Sector New England through its Inclusion Initiative program, will support the multi-sector networks in building a collaborative community of groups who will target their collective efforts at systemic issues that perpetuate economic inequality in the communities of color where they operate.

“It has been 50 years since we first declared the ‘war on poverty’ and income inequality and poverty has continued to be persistent especially in communities of color,” says Ayeesha Lane, Program Manager, Inclusion Initiative. “These grants are targeted to help close the gap and to move the needle on creating more just social systems that support racial and economic equity.”

LISC congratulates Mattapan United and their continued collaboration to support the diverse Mattapan community. The resources will be used to build capacity in Mattapan United social service organizations and to continue the work of the coalition. Link to the press release here
