Chicago's largest philanthropic organization, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, announced it will invest $26 million in 16 low-income neighborhoods — Auburn Gresham; Chicago Lawn; the quad communities of Douglas, North Kenwood-Oakland and Grand Boulevard; East Garfield; Englewood; Humboldt Park; Little Village; Logan Square; North Lawndale; Pilsen; South Chicago; Washington Park; West Haven and Woodlawn. — over the next five years.
