2018 • 2 years • Chicago Commitment
Since its founding in Chicago in 1978, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) has been a local and a national resource and innovator advancing urban sustainability and shared prosperity through initiatives in transportation, water, climate, and public policy. The organization seeks to build more livable and sustainable urban communities in Chicago neighborhoods and the metropolitan region. It does so by delivering technical assistance, research, data tools and solutions, and on-the-ground demonstrations to address environmental and social challenges. Grant funding enables CNT to flexibly respond to requests for assistance from neighborhoods, local governments, and collaborations across the Chicago region. It pursues innovative solutions in such areas as economic development, water management, infrastructure improvements, and transit-oriented development.
