The City of Chicago is currently in Phase Four: "Gradually Resume." Many City services have adjusted hours or locations and may require health screens prior to entering their physical spaces.

Written in the aftermath of the Great Recession, "Bouncing Back" identifies multiple housing issues, presents solutions, and establishes priorities, including the commitment to expand affordability and reduce the burdensome cost of housing on many owners and renters.
Given the unprecedented housing market decline in the previous decade, from which Chicago and the nation were still emerging, the 2014-2018 plan is different than its four predecessors. Developed with the help of more than 120 housing experts, activists, builders and owners, the plan explicitly recognizes that housing is interconnected with economic development, jobs, quality of life, and local land-use issues.
