Thank you for your interest in participating in the RPM Open for Business Program. This program aims to support small businesses, nonprofits, and major attractions or entertainment venues impacted by CTA’s Red and Purple Modernization (RPM) Phase One Project.

Participants can apply for this program to be included in marketing efforts, including campaigns developed by the CTA. The campaigns will increase the visibility of the local businesses and encourage people to shop, eat, play, and explore in the communities within the RPM project area.

Please note that Open for Business is meant to supplement other CTA construction mitigation efforts.
