BREAKING NEWS: A departmental breakdown shared with aldermen last week shows that, of the $403 million in discretionary federal funds provided to the city COVID-19 direct response, more than $280 million (!!!) went to the Chicago Police Department. #CARESNotCops #RightToRecovery
Comparatively, the Department of Public Health received just over $18 million; the Office of Emergency Management received just over $8 million; the Department of Family and Support Services got less than $200,000. The Office for People with Disabilities got only $2,000.
The breakdown also shows that $68 million of the CARES Act funding was unspent in 2020 even as tens of thousands of Chicagoans were denied rental relief and cash assistance and Mayor Lightfoot insisted on raising property taxes, fines, and fees in the 2021 budget.
