The Chicago Community Trust will create apps and other tools to help increase the utility of local government data to benefit community organizations and the broader public.
The Trust will also help explain and tell stories hidden in hundreds of data sets now available in the region so that they can be used as reporting tools in local media. The project expects to develop at least five apps that will help residents monitor government activities & efficiency and five apps that directly solve community problems.
