The Southland Reactivation Act is a tax abatement incentive to property developers who purchase commercial and industrial property within Bloom, Bremen, Calumet, Rich, Thornton or Worth Townships in Cook County.

Is the Southland Reactivation Act the right incentive for me?

The Southland Reactivation Act offers an economic incentive to private developers who work with municipalities to bring eligible non-tax generating commercial and industrial parcels back to productive use.

Eligible parcels must be:

  • Located in Bloom, Bremen, Calumet, Rich, Thornton, or Worth Townships in Cook County

  • Zoned commercial or industrial

  • Owned either by a municipality, the South Suburban Land Bank Development Authority, or the Cook County Land Bank Authority

Search for a specific parcel using this map to determine if it meets the program's basic eligibility requirements.
