Come Hear about Great Places and How to Apply for 2015 Mini-Grants on Feb. 19th


The 2015 Great Place Project will be launched at the February Networking Luncheon (Feb. 19th) hosted by the Cook County Chamber of Commerce and Cook County Higher Education. The Great Place team will be presenting about the 2014 round of mini-grants and offering the opportunity to learn more about the 2015 project.

We encourage interested businesses, organizations, and individuals (such as artists, craftspeople, etc.) to join us to learn more about the project and take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions and connect with others to explore possible collaborations (such as a business location with a local artist).
