Chicago Tribune reporting found that Chicago spent a significant amount of COVID-19 relief funds on police.
Some aldermen and community groups are slated to hold a news conference Thursday morning to question Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s allocation of the relief funds.
The money was largely used for police overtime and the response to the civil unrest last summer and enhanced security during the November election.
Other money went towards other agencies as well as O’Hare and Midway Airports.
The group of aldermen said that money should have gone to areas that needed help, like renters facing evictions, small businesses and public health services.
They will lay out the findings in the report this morning and break down how they want Lightfoot to prioritize the next wave of funding.
