PB in the Chicago Central Park TIF District
In partnership with Blocks Together, PB Chicago worked with residents and organizations in the West Humboldt Park community to democratically determine the use of tax increment finance (TIF) dollars. In the summer of 2014, a neighborhood town hall kicked off the first ever PB process to allocate TIF money. From these efforts, PB Chicago and Blocks Together created a toolkit for other community groups interested in using PB for TIF funds (see link on right side of page).
