The 27th Ward





The TIF Illumination Project has selected the 27th Ward on Chicago’s Near North and West sides for its first case to examine in depth the impacts of the TIFs that are contained inside the ward. There are 12 TIFs inside the 27th Ward. Here is a presentation with audio discussing what we found ( 1hour, 25 min).

++ If you review this presentation and learned something – know that it it the result of hundreds of volunteer hours (researchers, coders, designers). If we want to duplicate this work, we’re going to have to PAY some people to do it. What is knowing how TIFs work in Chicago worth to you? Please invest in this research by going over to and contributing a non-deductible amount of at least $10.00++
