A project bringing more affordable housing units to one Chicago neighborhood has just wrapped up.

The Resurrection Project used nearly $14 million to acquire 40 foreclosed properties in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

They were rehabbed and turned into 75 quality homes for working families. The money for the project came from federal grants though the neighborhood stabilization program.
