Description & History

The PhillyRising Collaborative is the City of Philadelphia's new way of doing business.

PhillyRising focuses on neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia that are plagued by chronic crime and quality of life concerns and establishes partnerships with community members to address these issues. The PhillyRising Team coordinates the actions of City agencies to help neighbors realize their vision for their community.

How is PhillyRising different?

Responsive: The City solicits ideas from residents about realistic ways to improve their communities.

Capacity Building: Community members learn about resources in their neighborhoods and are empowered to become leaders in their communities.

Sustainable: Projects are inspired and ultimately run by neighborhood residents.

Cost-Effective: PhillyRising coordinates existing resources to work together more efficiently, minimizing the financial impact of the PhillyRising process.
