The Cost of Segregation

Lost income. Lost lives. Lost potential.

The Metropolitan Planning Council, together with Urban Institute and a team of policy advisors, is leading a groundbreaking, two-year research and policy initiative. The first phase of the report reveals that segregation costs the Chicago region and all of its inhabitants billions of dollars each year. The next phase will focus on the work we can do—and policies we can adopt—to reduce Chicago's segregation and collectively create a metropolitan Chicago that works for everyone.
