Design is at the heart of the Collaborative's services. We focus on the built environment. We look at communities holistically. We bring together the many actors who need to be in place and in collaboration to strengthen neighborhoods.
Our Design Grants respond to the needs of communities with pro bono preliminary design services. Infill Philadelphia promotes collaboration and early action on emerging community development issues. We deliberately focus some of our resources on Impact Areas that merit special attention and civic engagement. We provide professional development and education to design professionals, nonprofit organizations, public agencies, funders, and other advocates for community design and development.
