Tax Increment Financing Districts (TIFs) are a BIG deal in Chicago.
How do they work?
How many of them are there?
How much money are they moving annually?
How do TIFs fit into the larger narrative of economic justice in Chicago?
We will answer these questions and more with a special online seminar.

He was a co-leader of the No Games Chicago campaign in 2009 that derailed Chicago’s bid to host the 2016 Summer Olympics (www.nogameschicago.com).
