Jamie Dimon, JPMorgan Chase Chairman and CEO, on-hand for the major announcement.

“I want to thank you for recognizing it takes big, bold steps to address joblessness, poverty and lack of retail available on Chicago’s West and South sides,” said Calvin L. Holmes, CCLF President. “I was astounded by JPMorgan Chase’s $40 million commitment to Chicago neighborhoods last year, but I am humbled by the trust in Chicago Community Loan Fund to expand on that commitment with another $10 million for commercial retail development. CCLF accepts the challenge to put this new source of low-cost capital into projects that will bring goods and services back to the neighborhood.”
