Thanks to generous support from readers and advertisers, we are now in the home stretch of our campaign to revive this website. Our war chest now contains $45,630, which means we've got less than $4.5K to raise in order to win the $25K challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust that will allow us to resume publication. However, we now have only eight days to come up with that money before out April 8 reboot deadline, so it's crunch time. If you value Streetsblog Chicago's hard-hitting transportation reporting and haven't already donated to the resurrection fund, please do so today.

Thanks again for your support!
