It's down to the wire here at Streetsblog Chicago. So far, thanks to generous support from readers like you and sponsors, we've raised $47,425, which means we've got a mere $2,575 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 two days to come up with that money before out April 8 reboot deadline.

We've got a funding lead or two that is likely to materialize by then, so I'm confident that it's not a question of whether we will raise that money, but how. But you can help guarantee that we meet our goal in time. If you value having a daily source for sustainable transportation and safe streets news, and haven't already donated to the resurrection fund, please do so today.

Thanks so much for your support!
