We work to:

- Revitalize neighborhoods by building vibrant commercial districts.
- Support small businesses and improve access to funding.
- Develop a strong talent pipeline.
- Increase contracting opportunities for minority, women, and disabled-owned businesses.
If your Philadelphia business manufactures or can pivot to manufacturing COVID-19-related supplies, submit your information to the portal to help the City identify opportunities and solutions.
Information and resources are available for businesses affected by COVID-19. Find them here.
