We hope this message finds you healthy and safe during this crisis. PACDC staff will continue to work from home until it’s safe to reopen our offices.

As we monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our neighborhoods, our staff and board of directors are all-the-more committed to building an Equitable Philadelphia and supporting our members at this time.

COVID-19 Policy Agenda

PACDC released a policy agenda calling for protections for renters, home owners, small businesses, and the non-profits that serve them, to help Philadelphia make it through the immediate COVID-19 crisis.


COVID-19 Resources

We’re going to be honest here: We have more questions than answers, but with your support and collaboration, we will meet this challenge together. As a first step, our staff has compiled this COVID-19 Resource Directory for both our members and fellow Philadelphians looking to receive and offer help.



Encourage Your Neighbors to Stay Home

As trusted sources of vital information, Philly’s CDCs, NACs, RCOs, and other community organizations are uniquely well-suited to persuade our neighbors to stay home. To help, here are several important COVID-19 resources developed by or in conjunction with health professionals locally: 

City Operations

The City announced new restrictions on private, public, and business activities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The restriction will last from Friday, November 20th through Friday, January 1st. A full list of the restrictions can be found here.
