Reminder: City Vacant Lots Sale / Rehab Grant
From State Rep Sonya Harper:
As your state legislator, I wanted to bring to your attention the upcoming vacant lot sale in the city of Chicago. This is a great opportunity for individuals and organizations to purchase and transform underutilized land into vibrant and thriving community spaces. I have also included a separate pdf that links to the vacant lots, some are in the 6th district while others are outside of our district.
To qualify for the sale, interested parties must meet certain requirements set by the city. These requirements are included in the pdf below and range from proof of financial capability, budget and development of the land. It is important to carefully review and understand these requirements before submitting an application.
I encourage you to consider participating in this sale and turning a vacant lot into a valuable asset for our community. If you have any questions or need assistance with the application process, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Applications will be accepted through February 3, 2023. DPD will host its last online webinar for potential purchasers January 12th 2023, to answer questions about the process. Priority consideration will be given to adjacent property owners and applicants proposing to build new housing or other improvements that benefit the neighborhood.
Additional City lots will be made available throughout 2023. For more information, visit Chicago.gov/BlockBuilder.
