About Us

The CivicLab as a physical space is closed. We operated for two eventful years and closed on June 30, 2015. However, our civic work continues! Visit the TIF Illumination Project at www.tifreports.com.

We are proud to announce the publication of our first book: “Chicago Is Not Broke. Funding the City We Deserve.” It’s a collection of short articles by Chicago experts outlining ways to save and generate MAJOR revenues for Chicago. Order the book by clicking on the image below.
