Community transformation could not be possible without the partnership of our generous funders:
The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) has been a vital partner with CDTech throughout our 20 year history in building resident capacity to lead community transformation in Los Angeles’s most neglected neighborhoods. Most recently, in 2014-15 and 2015-16, LISC provided CDTech with HUD Section 4 capacity building funding focused in South Los Angeles to (1) strengthen career and technical education and apprenticeship/internship pathways in the field of community change work; (2) create pathways to employment for the un- and under-employed; and, (3) increase grassroots and regional collaborative capacity to increase resources and defend against displacement in South LA’s historic communities of color that are being impacted by large-scale redevelopment of the area. LISC’s investment and partnership with CDTech is crucial to ensuring that existing residents and small, minority and women-owned businesses benefit from this economic development boom.
CIT OneWest Bank is an important sponsor of CDTech’s community economic development strategies focused on higher education and career pathways.
