Germantown United CDC

The Collaborative provides design consultations to store owners who are applying for grants and loans to improve their storefront facades. Consultations are provided through community development corporations and other nonprofits, who recruit store owners on their corridors to participate. The consultations focused on six owners eligible for the City of Philadelphia’s Storefront Improvement Program grants and a revolving fund to support the preservation of historic storefronts in Germantown.
