Chicago People Places Possibilities

Chicago’s INVEST South West is an unprecedented community improvement initiative under Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot to marshal the resources of multiple City departments, community organizations, and corporate and philanthropic partners toward 12 commercial corridors within 10 South and West side community areas.

Through this unprecedented collaboration, the City is aligning an initial $750 million in public funding while attracting significant additional private and philanthropic capital, responding to changing commercial trends, and enriching local culture at targeted nodes and intersections. Totaling more than $1.4 billion in public and private investment after two years, the initiative is providing support for small businesses, creating public realm improvements, restoring historic buildings, and fostering equity and resilience where it’s needed most.
