Socioeconomically Disadvantaged Areas

Areas of Chicago, based on census tracts, that are the most socioeconomically disadvantaged, for the purpose of promoting equitable hiring within areas of economic need. Qualifying areas were identified using three criteria, based on data from the 2014 American Community Survey: household income, poverty rate, and unemployment rate.

These area designations are <a href="">used for workforce bid incentives</a> for City contracts administered by the Department of Procurement Services. They will also be used for workforce requirements for construction at the temporary casino facility, as agreed to in the <a href="">Host Community Agreement</a> between Bally’s and the City of Chicago.

The designations are made under <a href="">Section 2-92-390</a> of the City of Chicago code.
