Bring Chicago Home to host a citywide housing forum next Tuesday
Our Bring Chicago Home (BCH) campaign, in partnership with Right to Recovery, CCH, and other BCH steering committee members, will host a virtual citywide housing forum, We Demand Better. Join us Tuesday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m. to demand that the city of Chicago does more to create safe, stable housing for all. Register here. The city will receive $1.9 billion in discretionary funds through the American Rescue Plan. Mayor Lightfoot spent over 60% of flexible funding from the CARES Act on policing, and is now proposing that nearly half of the incoming flexible funding is spent on the city’s debt rather than on what residents need. Meanwhile, nearly 77,000 people are experiencing homelessness in Chicago.
