Cook County Jail was an early U.S. hotspot for COVID-19. Since then, there have been efforts to control the spread among incarcerated and returning citizens. As other counties are exploring creative housing solutions during this time, Cook County and Chicago have the opportunity to improve the health and safety and to keep this vulnerable population adequately housed. Join us for a lively discussion about what is currently in place and how to adequately address the housing needs of this population from our panel.

This event is co-hosted by Metropolitan Planning Council and Enterprise Community Partners.


  • Floyd Stafford, Heartland Alliance [moderator]
