Sharing Our 2023 CVP Annual Report

Chicago is facing rising homelessness and housing instability among longtime residents and new arrivals, compounding the consequences of decades of systemic segregation and disinvestment. Yet Chicago is also equipped with strong and rooted local leaders committed to building thriving, well-resourced neighborhoods, through the creation and preservation of housing, community facilities, and equitable economic development projects. 

Case in point: our Community Ventures Program (CVP) just wrapped up another fruitful year of strengthening Chicago neighborhoods. You can read all about it in our Annual Report!

In 2023, CVP:

  • Worked on 20 projects in 15 Chicago neighborhoods/suburbs
  • Awarded 7 new loans, totaling nearly $1.2 million
  • Partnered on 100% BIPOC-led projects

With your vital support, JCUA is collaboratively advancing housing and economic justice in our region. Learn more about our Community Ventures Program.
