Summary/Notes:  On 11/1/2019, The County issued a call for projects for its “A Home for Cook County’s Animals” program with the goal of expanding the capacity of existing non-profit and governmental animal shelters to address current overcrowding, while providing housing for animals impounded by ARC. The program provides financial assistance to cover the capital costs of planning and construction of animal shelter facilities in Cook County.

 

The City of Evanston submitted an application including a construction timeline and detailed cost estimate. On 5/21/2020 the Board awarded the City $2,000,000.00.
