Announcing The Chicago Prize results: Meet the Finalists

Meet the Finalists

Please join Pritzker Traubert Foundation in congratulating the Finalists. The Finalist initiatives vary in their approach, but all are working to build something transformative for their neighborhood.


On December 11, 2019, Pritzker Traubert Foundation announced six Chicago Prize Finalists. Each Finalist will be supported by a $100,000 planning grant and in-kind technical assistance to support efforts to refine their plans. In spring/summer 2020, one $10 million grant will be awarded to a single community-driven initiative that is able to leverage the grant, catalyze economic opportunity, and improve the well-being of residents.
