Special Service Areas, known as Business Improvement Districts are local tax districts that fund expanded services and programs through a localized property tax levy within contiguous areas. The enhanced services and programs are in addition to those currently provided through the City.


SSA-funded projects typically include but are not limited to:

Public Way Maintenance & Beautification

District Marketing and Advertising

Business Retention/Attraction

Special Events and Promotional Activities

Auto and Bike Transit

Security

Façade Improvements

Other Commercial and Economic Development Initiatives

The City contracts with local non-profits, called Service Providers, to manage SSAs. Appointed SSA Commissioners for each SSA district oversee and recommend the annual services, budget, and Service Provider Agency to the City. There are currently 53 active SSAs in Chicago.
