Downtown Hyde Park signage

Beginning Feb. 1, businesses in the Downtown Hyde Park footprint will be eligible for another $300 rebate for personal protective equipment, cleaning supplies and sanitary sundries from the Special Service Area (SSA) #61 business improvement district.

Applicants must file the application, with receipts, online. Additional information is at

The SSA is also distributing branded signage encouraging masking, social distancing and other good pandemic practices. They can be requested online or from Brandon Evans at the South East Chicago Commission, the SSA's service provider.

Update: The story and headline have been updated to reflect that Special Service Area #61, not Downtown Hyde Park, is the preferred name for the business improvement district.
