National Endowment of the Arts Chairman Rocco Landesman has announced that the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs ( DCA ) , in partnership with the Departments of Community Development ( DCD ) and Zoning and Land Use Planning ( DZP ) , have been awarded a $250,000 grant to initiate the next stage of planning for the transformation of four landmark industrial buildings into the Cermak Creative Industry District ( CCID ) . The grant will go toward providing affordable and sustainable spaces for a vibrant mix of creative businesses and work spaces for the arts.

Chicago's project is one of 21 grants, totaling $3 million, awarded by the NEA Mayors' Institute on City Design 25th Anniversary Initiative ( MICD 25 ) . The grants—ranging from $25,000 to $250,000—re going to communities across the United States, from Easton, Penn., to Los Angeles, Calif.

Information on all 21 MICD25 projects around the country is available at www.arts.gov .
