Rebuild

Rebuilding Community Infrastructure (Rebuild) is a City of Philadelphia program to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to improve neighborhood parks, recreation centers, and libraries. Community Ventures has been selected as one of the 20 non-profit organizations to manage Rebuild projects. These non-profits are known as “Project Users” for Rebuild.

About Rebuild

There are more than 400 neighborhood parks, recreation centers, and libraries in Philadelphia. They serve as safe spaces for people to learn, play, exercise, and get access to important services. However, about 90 percent of these places are in need of investment.

Made possible by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax, Rebuild will invest hundreds of millions of dollars in improving community facilities. Through its projects, Rebuild will:
Make physical improvements to parks, recreation centers, and libraries.
Promote diversity and economic inclusion. Rebuild will support minorities and women who work (or want to work) in the design and construction industries.
Engage with community members to leverage their knowledge, power, and expertise. Community feedback will inform the improvements that are made to facilities.
