Rogers Park – Community of Opportunity - Housing


CURL supported six community-based organizations to create a collaboration to develop and implement policies to maintain and create affordable housing in Rogers Park.  This was one of the projects in a 3-year initiative funded by HUD’s COPC grant.

A housing database was updated along with assessment of at-risk buildings and completed initial research as outlined by the coalition.  A report, “Gentrification and Affordable Housing in Rogers Park: Community of Change - Community of Opportunity,” was produced.
