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.
