Port Richmond Business Alliance

The Collaborative provides design consultations to store owners applying for grants and loans to improve their storefront facades. Candidates for consultations are identified by community development corporations and business associations, who recruit store owners on their corridors to participate. The Collaborative focused on business staples throughout Port Richmond including a bank, a funeral home, a café, two bars, and a florist.
