Through collaborative projects, the County can leverage investment dollars and attract additional partners to create even greater regional economic advancement. Cook County and the City of Chicago are both leaders in and funders of economic development projects. Working with the City to coordinate investment and strategic programming, the County can maximize the regional impact of our programs and grow the tax base. Through the Government Partnership for Economic Development committee, Metropolitan Planning Council, and the newly established Council of Economic Advisor, the County partners with the business community to increase capacity and build new businesses.
