Climate Infrastructure Projects

The City of Chicago Climate Infrastructure Fund was created to help achieve the City’s Climate Action Plan goal of reducing greenhouse emissions by 62% by 2040. The Fund part of the Chicago Recovery Plan supports neighborhood projects that mitigate the effects of climate change and accelerate the city’s equitable transition to the green economy. The City has provided grants up to $250,000 to support capital investments in energy-efficiency projects, electric vehicle infrastructure and green infrastructure.

Garfield Nature Play Park

Climate Infrastructure Fund (CIF) finalist Garfield Park Community Council (GPCC) is a community-based organization made up of residents and allies dedicated to developing leaders and creating opportunities which will build a thriving Garfield Park.  

Thanks to a $250,000 CIF grant, GPCC will construct a new nature play area that promotes healthy child development and physical activity on a vacant lot along the Fifth Avenue Resilient Corridor. The funding will also support green stormwater management at the nature park that addresses localized flooding in the area.
