Southwest Organizing Project

In an effort to revitalize the Southwest Side of Chicago, SWOP and Brinshore Development partnered up to rehab five homes in Gage Park and Chicago Lawn. We are incredibly proud to be involved in financing this project. In January of 2020, FEB closed on a line of credit to SWOP and Brinshore which is being used to rehab three single-family homes and two duplexes in these neighborhoods. Using these proceeds, SWOP’s and Brinshore Development’s work is helping to improve the homes, schools, safety and pride in the communities where they operate.

We’re grateful to Nick Brunnick, a member of our CDFI Advisory Board, for introducing FEB to SWOP and playing a crucial role in coordinating the LOC.
