TIFs, the ARO Pilot, and Equitable Development around the 78

  • Leonard M. Louie Fieldhouse 1700 South Wentworth Avenue Chicago, IL, 60616 United States (map)

Join us for a hands-on workshop on Tax Increment Financing (TIFs), the new ARO pilot in Pilsen/Little Village along with a discussion of equitable development and displacement in the community surrounding the new 78 development.

  • How do TIFs really work, and who decides if a TIF is created?

  • How does a TIF impact the neighborhood and the city as a whole

  • What is this new ARO Pilot and how is it connected to the 78 development?

  • How will big developments such as the 78 impact residents?

We’ll also hear from the DePaul Institute for Housing Studies on how we can use data to talk about displacement and housing issues across Chicago.  This workshop is organized by Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, Chicago United for Equity, Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community, and Pilsen Alliance.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors will open at 6 pm.
