A data portal launched by the Woodstock Institute will make available information on foreclosures, mortgage lending, housing, income, and employment for counties, community areas, and municipalities throughout the Chicago area. The data portal, created with support from MacArthur, is intended to serve as a tool for community organizations, researchers, policymakers, and advocates to quickly access the specific data they need to make decisions and act effectively.
