Grants to Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives
2017 (Duration 4 years)
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Established in 2010, Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives seeks to revitalize neighborhoods and create jobs through high-impact community development projects. With projects in the Pullman, Englewood, and Bronzeville neighborhoods of Chicago’s South Side, it provides financial resources to entrepreneurs; develops tourism, retail, and other sources of economic development; and engages community members in the design of projects to ensure they serve local interests. This institutional support award enables the organization to create an innovation fund, establish an operating reserve, and undertake an evaluation of its impact to date.
The MacArthur Foundation awarded Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives $1,000,000 between 1978 and 2018.
