The City of Philadelphia got some great news this week in terms of grant money received for two projects.    

The Department of Energy awarded Philadelphia a $129 million dollar grant to establish an energy hub at the Navy Yard.  This energy hub will create green technology.  The project is expected to create 1,200 jobs immediately and another 100,000 in ten years!    

The Urban Affairs Coalition was awarded an $11.8 million dollar grant to bring broadband internet access to low-income city residents.    

Way to go out there and get funding!

  1. And we just sit and watch all that money go somewhere else. Our Borough should hire a staff of grant writers, they’d pay their own salary in short order.

    Of course, without a comprehensive plan, a process and public buy-in there would be no point.
