Capital Program

Every year, City Planning Commission staff leads an interdepartmental effort to prepare the City’s Recommended Capital Program, the six-year blueprint for investing in Philadelphia’s physical and technology infrastructure, community facilities, and public buildings. The Capital Budget is the Program’s first year spending plan.
Limited financial resources dictate that priorities be established among the competing needs of more than 20 City agencies and departments. Staff works with the Office of Budget and Program Evaluation to establish priorities based upon several considerations, including:
  • Mayoral priorities;
  • Philadelphia2035; and recommendations contained in community plans, which reflect the needs of the City’s neighborhoods and population;
  • The need to maintain and enhance the City’s physical plant so as to deliver public services as effectively as possible;
  • City government’s fiscal policies and constraints; and
  • The ability to leverage capital funding from other government and private sources.

The Recommended FY2018 - FY2023 Capital Program and FY2018 Capital Budget are posted here.
