February 6, 2009 - Prepare for the Federal Stimulus
The Chicago Rehab Network hosted a Workshop to Prepare for Federal Stimulus Dollars to prepare and inform CDC and CBOs for the impact the funds could have on our communities. Nearly fifty participants representing a wide range of CDCs and CBOs added their voices to this important discussion. Thank you to the Renaissance Collaborative for sharing its space within the historic Wabash YMCA. The workshop speakers shared the highlights of the Stimulus Bill and it was clear that the work is not yet over. We urge you to use the information generated in today’s workshop to get in contact with your Congressional Representatives and to prepare your own “shovel ready” projects.
CRN is welcoming submissions of shovel-ready affordable housing projects.The information you provide will also help CRN present an accurate picture of Chicago’s affordable housing developments in-progress and to better advocate for our communities. Please return the information to CRN by Wednesday, February 11th by emailing Rachel Johnston at Rachel@chicagorehab.org or by faxing it to 312-663-3562.
