About Us

Community and Neighborhood Improvement Project (CNIP) is based in on the far south-side of Chicago. CNIP is a non-profit advocacy organization based on Chicago’s South Side that engages people in economically productive, healthy and active ways of living with an emphasis on:

  1. Improving conditions for bicycling, walking and public transportation that increase access and the aesthetic appearance of our communities.
  2. Developing or maintaining economic independence for the community and neighborhood, and
  3. Increasing access to healthy food options such as community gardens, farmers markets, and affordable access to a variety of fruits and vegetables.

The vision of CNIP is to increase the overall quality of life in our local communities through improved access to modes of transit
and increasing economic independence that results in community pride and healthy, sustainable lifestyles.

We envision the neighborhoods of the south-side of Chicago being places that are safe, fun, and healthy places to live, work and
PLAY.
