Capital Program

Every year Division staff leads an interdepartmental effort to prepare the City’s 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 establishes priorities based upon several considerations, including:

  • 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.
