GSDC focuses on attracting newly opened or new-to-the area businesses, as well as retaining and expanding existing commercial or manufacturing businesses on Chicago’s southwest side. The area is home to small businesses as well as major employers, such as Meade Electric and Dart, all of which support household income and form a solid foundation for economic growth. Read about how we not only provide capital, but also offer support to help Chicagoland small businesses grow.
GSDC provides a wide variety of programs for area residents including financial, housing and job assistance services. These include housing counseling, financial coaching, employment services, income support screening and computer training.
The Law Project of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights provides free legal assistance, education and training to community based nonprofit organizations, low/moderate income entrepreneurs and low-income first time homebuyers.
