Panel discussions will explore how the City of Chicago, Cook County, state of Illinois, philanthropy, investors, community development financial institutions, community development corporations, and other institutional actors can align their efforts and capacities to attract substantial capital into the selected zones and ensure new capital benefits current community residents. The first panel will examine using zones to advance development and preservation of affordable housing, and the second will focus on how zones can build community wealth. The afternoon will conclude with a network building opportunity for attendees.
