2021 Policy Priorities

Our recommendations for federal, state, and local policy change

MPC’s 2021 policy priorities are driven by our values of equity, sustainability, prosperity, and effective, accountable government. Our overall slate of recommendations furthers these values by building off several priorities at multiple levels of government.

For more than 85 years, MPC has worked to create prosperous, equitable, and sustainable communities throughout northeastern Illinois and the Chicago region. The solutions we’ve implemented have resulted in vibrant neighborhoods, quality housing and transportation, a strong economy, well-managed natural assets, and efficient delivery of government services. This requires advancing policy change at multiple levels of government. See below for our 2021 Federal Policy Agenda; a State Agenda is coming soon.
