A free workshop on how TIF districts work, and how community organizations can influence allocation of funds. TIFs provide public subsidies for redevelopment, infrastructure, and other community improvement projects. This will be the first workshop in The Law Project's new Building Community Equity Workshop Series on land use and planning practices in Chicago, and how community members can get involved. In this workshop, we will discuss how TIFs work and how community organizations can influence allocation of funds, successes in democratizing TIFs in the 27th Ward, and TIF reform options.
Chinatown Branch of the Chicago Public Library, 2100 S. Wentworth Ave., Community Room.
