What is the Cook County Community Recovery Initiative?

We created this rapid response initiative to provide equitable and holistic comprehensive financial relief and critical support services to help suburban Cook County residents and small businesses rebound stronger than ever from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The initiative, funded by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, is part of our ongoing commitment to promote equitable economic growth and community development, along with our partners.

  • We have launched a wide range of assistance programs as part of our equitable recovery initiative.
  • Our goal is to assist businesses to remain open, workers find jobs and families stay in their homes.
