Chicago Recovery Plan Grant

Are you a small business owner, entrepreneur, or community developer?

Chicago Recovery Plan grant applications open in January to support local commercial, mixed-use, and
light manufacturing development. Grants of up to $5 million are available.

Chicago Recovery Plan Grant Eligibility

Grant funding can be used for pre-development, construction, or renovation costs for permanent
capital improvement projects. Open to community developers, business owners and entrepreneurs, and property owners. Site control is preferred, but not required.

Applicants from all areas of Chicago are eligible to apply.

Priority will be given for projects in historically disinvested areas as well as projects that build upon existing efforts, such as Mayor Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West initiative and community
safety initiatives.
