Support our work

For 80 years, the Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) has made the Chicago region a better place to live and work by working hand-in-hand with businesses, communities and governments to address the area’s toughest planning and development challenges. While MPC works to solve today's urgent problems—focusing on economic development, vibrant neighborhoods, quality housing and transportation choices, and well-managed natural assets—we consistently think ahead to prepare the region for the needs of tomorrow.

Our efforts are grounded in the greater Chicago metropolitan region, including northeastern Illinois, northwestern Indiana and southeastern Wisconsin, but our solutions can be put to work in cities and regions across the U.S. and around the world.

MPC's research, advocacy and demonstration projects are funded entirely by contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations.
