Am I in a SBIF District?

The SBIF program is funded by Tax Increment Financing (TIF) revenues, and eligible applicants must be located in a TIF district in the City of Chicago. This page is designed to help you determine if you are in a TIF district.

1. Go to the City’s zoning map tool website:

2. When you arrive at the City of Chicago’s zoning page, click on the zoning map icon, and then click accept. After accepting, the mapping tool will load.

3.Enter your address in the “Search by Address or PIN#” field. Your desired address should come up on the map. Click on it and a green circle will appear where you clicked, and a Locate and Search pop-up window should appear to the left of the page, as seen below

This pop-up window will include useful information about the property, including whether it is in a TIF district, the alderman and ward for the property, and whether the property is located in an Empowerment Zone.

4. Once you have verified that you are in a TIF district name, please verify that your address is also in a SBIF district.

If you are currently in a TIF district that is not a SBIF, please contact your alderman (you can find their information by using the identify button) and let them know that you would like to have the SBIF program implemented in your TIF district!

If you have any questions about how to navigate this or if you are located in a SBIF-eligible TIF district, please email the SBIF team at
