Workforce Development, Collaboration, and Rebuilding Chicago’s South and West Sides (Mobile Workshop)
Date & Time
Wednesday, September 7, 2022, 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

The Chicago Neighborhood Rebuild pilot program is a massive collaborative effort between public and private stakeholders, developers, workforce development agencies, and the local land bank authority. Its goal is to rehabilitate dozens of single-family and two-flat vacant properties on Chicago’s South and West side, and sell them to new homeowners. The program also provides transitional jobs and training opportunities for at-risk youth and ex-offenders. In this tour of the neighborhood, attendees will learn about the program’s inception and execution, lessons learned, and hear from program partners who can speak to the benefits of this unique collaboration. We will highlight housing projects in various stages of redevelopment and discover how these projects are creating visible neighborhood change and developing wealth-building opportunities for Chicago’s communities of color.
