Through the Community Development Grant Program, Chicago Recovery Plan funding is being used to rehabilitate vacant commercial and mixed-use buildings in neighborhood corridors for use by residents and business owners, emphasizing areas identified as key violence reduction areas.

The pandemic and its effects have exacerbated the financial barriers faced by small businesses and local developers when starting or expanding businesses and other community assets. The Community Development Grant program demonstrates the Department of Planning and Development (DPD)’s commitment to strengthening local business corridors and enhancing neighborhood vitality by providing funding for rehabilitation and new construction development projects. Projects include a variety of businesses and organizations, including restaurants, professional services organizations, cultural institutions, workforce development and educational service organizations, and more.

The Community Development Grant program is funded through the Chicago Recovery Plan, the Neighborhood Opportunity Fund, and Tax Increment Financing funds.
