Chicago Community Needs Summary Tool

Introduction and Instructions
This tool allows you to choose up to 5 geographic areas that you expect to target for services by indicating a central address and a corresponding radius around that address. Once geographic areas are chosen, the chart will populate with data specific to that designated area to help you build a narrative in your application. You are free to pursue other data sources to use in your application narrative. In addition, you are free to choose as many as five areas, but you may find that one or two areas will be sufficient to encompass your main recruitment areas. Data for overlapping geographic areas (shown in the "Your Areas Combined" column at the right) are calculated without duplication.


Step 1: Type in a street address (including the zipcode) that is at the center of the area you will serve. This does not have to be the address of your center.
NOTE: If you do not include the zipcode and/or "Chicago, IL," the app may not recognize the address.

Step 2: Choose the radius (0.5, 1.0, or 2.0 miles) that best approximates the geographic area in which likely participants live.

Step 3: Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for up to five geographic areas. The tool will then calculate the statistics of your chosen area(s) in the table below.
