SUPPORTING THE CHICAGO SOUTHLAND THROUGH EDUCATION
The South-Southwest Suburban Region, commonly known as the Southlands are comprised of more than 2.5 million residents living in 62 communities throughout Cook and Will Counties. Historically, the Southlands have been a key source of people and firms driving the regional economy. Today, the regions remain asset-rich, housing over 20percent of suburban Cook County’s population and nearly 15 percent of its businesses. However, this region faces new challenges as they have become increasingly disconnected from the regional economy and its trajectory. This growing exclusion heightens the social, racial, fiscal, and other challenges these communities face, and undermines the long-term growth of the entire metropolitan region.
The most severe poverty rate increases in Chicago occurred in the southern suburban cities of Harvey, Chicago Heights, Robbins and Calumet City. This zone of spiraling poverty is in contrast to the City of Chicago, which has seen stabilization in its low income population. The greatest need in the southern suburbs is for basic needs such as food insecurity, housing and safety from abuse. The Southland area consists of disinvested areas, both Economically Disconnected Areas (EDAs) and struggling commercial and industrial areas. Those areas have a concentration of low
income and BIPOC populations and have experienced a loss of economic activity over a sustained period. Without action, evidence of increasing training requirements and decreasing employer investments in training raises concerns about compounding inequality and lagging employment.
One distinguishing feature of the South Suburbs – compared to other parts of the region’s suburban landscape – is their prominence as a place of residence for the region’s African-American population. The southern suburbs are experiencing increased needs and reduced services and are poorly equipped to advocate for the resources they need to support their residents.
