Julie Franklin joins LISC Upstate SC program as executive director
The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) has opened its 36th metro office in Upstate South Carolina, bringing in Julie Franklin as executive director of the LISC Upstate SC program.
The program will focus on comprehensive, long-term investments in affordable housing, businesses and job opportunities for residents of the region. Franklin, who is a seasoned economic development leader, will draw on her extensive experienced honed in Greenville and Spartanburg.
Maurice A. Jones, LISC president and CEO, mentions that they are pleased to have Franklin share her expertise to help them drive efforts to build a more inclusive and equitable local economy.
“As a whole, the Upstate is enjoying strong growth, but not everyone has been able to participate in our economic expansion,” Franklin said in a press release. “To succeed in a globally competitive marketplace, we need to build up our local talent, strengthen our neighborhoods and fuel a broadly shared prosperity that allows everyone to thrive.”
LISC has helped several individual projects in South Carolina in the past and is now making an effort to reach a wider community.
