What we do
The COVID-19 Recovery Office works to ensure that Philadelphia recovers from the pandemic in a way that:
- Protects public health and safety.
- Is fiscally responsible for the City and its taxpayers.
- Addresses the most pressing community hardships caused by the pandemic.
- Puts Philadelphians back to work.
- Helps businesses in hard-hit communities reopen and thrive.
Our aim is a more equitable and prosperous Philadelphia post-recovery.
Office structure and duties
The office is governed by a steering committee that oversees five working groups of senior City leaders. These groups focus on:
- Policy and legislation.
- Internal controls and compliance.
- Financial administration and grants management.
- Citywide economic recovery.
The Recovery Office manages the City’s state and federal COVID-19-related funding. To ensure that resources are used effectively, the office coordinates with external stakeholders on all plans for citywide recovery and economic reopening.
