PROVIDENCE – LISC Rhode Island ended 2017 having invested $26.8 million, including $2.3 million in grants, the nonprofit announced Wednesday.
LISC RI surpassed its investment total for 2016 by $1.7 million and set a record for the national nonprofit’s investment in Rhode Island.
“It’s great to have this level of investment in Rhode Island,” said Jeanne Cola, executive director, in a statement. “Last year, we set a goal of investing $25 million to celebrate our 25th year in Rhode Island. To have surpassed that amount this year is a great achievement. With this level of investment, LISC has been a real change-maker.”

The 2018 RI Kids Count Factbook, released on Monday, is fascinating. It provides a window into the lives of Rhode Island’s children, and it also offers some peripheral data that contextualizes how the state’s youngest residents are raised.
A portion of the Factbook involves housing security and the economic well-being of the family unit. According to the Factbook, in 2017, the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Rhode Island was $1,385 — a $100 increase over the previous year. In order to live without a cost burden — when more than 30 percent of a family’s income is spent on housing — a worker must earn $26.63 an hour, at forty hours a week, to be able to afford that monthly rent. Last year’s minimum wage in Rhode Island was $9.60.
