CWB Goals

Please provide a brief update on your progress toward your proposed CWB goals in the last reporting period:

The Resurrection Project continues to work on finalizing its share loan product. In February, The Resurrection Project produced 4 education workshop curriculums to prepare for the launch of our educational and info workshops for current and prospective cooperative housing members. We also continue to engage with our partners and stakeholders to be sure we are up-to-date and informed about our shared progress. Finally, we recently learned that we will be partnering with the City of Chicago to administer Track 1 of its Shared Equity Investment Program. This is not public and will be announced once we are further along in the contracting process.

What constraints or limitations, if any, did you experience in the last reporting period?

We didn’t encounter any barriers aside from the development of the share loan product. During this time, we zoomed into the educational components. We continue to participate in the UHAB Incubation sessions and stay connected to our partners, stakeholders, and colleagues.

What opportunities, if any, did you take advantage of in the last reporting period?

We had the opportunity to initiate conversations regarding the educational Co-op workshop content with the help of Robin Semer and Mark Smithivas. Irma Figueroa and Jose Lepez from our lending department participated in the incubation session. Due to scheduling conflicts, we had to miss the rescheduled incubation session scheduled for 2/26/2024. Despite this absence, we remain committed to the incubation series and consulting with professionals who can help us structure the content effectively and culturally relevant. We also attended the CWB Housing Cooperatives with Long-Cooperative Term Affordability monthly working session and the Housing Taskforce meeting on 2/29.
