Calumet Collaborative

Transforming the Calumet Lakefront Area with Thriving Commerce, Communities and Wildlife

The Calumet Collaborative catalyzes innovative partnerships between Illinois and Indiana community, government, business and nonprofit stakeholders to advance a thriving Calumet region. Spanning southeast Chicago, south Cook County and northwest Indiana, the bi-state Calumet region boasts proud and diverse communities, important natural ecosystems, and a powerful industrial heritage. As the region builds on these assets toward a vibrant future for people, wildlife and businesses, the Calumet Collaborative is fostering a new level of collaboration in sustainable development.
