The following letter was sent by the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project to neighborhood, business, and civic leaders.

At the PHL Neighborhood Growth Project, we are proud to have a coalition of partners working on so many diverse initiatives aimed at reducing poverty in Philadelphia and bringing a shared prosperity to every neighborhood.

Last week, Yvette Núñez with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia spoke at a hearing of the Special Committee on Poverty Reduction and Prevention. She highlighted the work being done by not only The Chamber, but by each of you through our Neighborhood Growth Project.

I encourage you to take a moment and read what Yvette shared with the committee.

Through testimony such as this and last month’s successful Inclusive Growth Hearing, I believe we are set to accomplish great things in 2020

Thank you,

Rob Wonderling is President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia.
