Chicago Community Development Grant July 2022 Finalists

The Chicago Recovery Plan (CRP) is a citywide effort under Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot to catalyze a sustainable economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. Utilizing federal and local funding sources, the CRP is making grants available for private investment projects based on community-driven priorities established through the 2022 City budget process. Public funding is intended to foster thriving and safe communities, as well as support an equitable economic recovery.

In July 2022, 79 businesses and organizations across 36 community areas were selected by the Chicago Department of Planning and Development (DPD) to receive more than $49 million in support of more than $97 million in total neighborhood investments. Thirty-five businesses and organizations—which account for nearly $33 million in total investment—are in INVEST South/West areas within the City. The projects will add vitality to business corridors, create jobs, enhance public safety and health, and provide amenities for those living in and visiting those neighborhoods.
