Resources for CDC’s

The City of Philadelphia uses the Community Development Corporation (CDC) Tax Credit Program to encourage and reward local businesses making a contribution and commitment to Philadelphia CDCs and their economic development efforts in distressed parts of the City. The program is simple: in return for contributing $85,000 per year to a CDC for ten years (with yearly renewals) a business, or two businesses partnering for the total grant amount of $85,000, receive a credit of $85,000 per year against their Philadelphia Income and Receipts Tax obligation. 

Applications are accepted by the Revenue Department on an annual basis when there are partnership slots available.


For more information about eligible CDC or other nonprofit organizations and eligible economic development activities, contact Terrine Datts at 215-683-2167,


City, State & Government Affairs

​The legislators that represent Philadelphia are part of the Philadelphia City Council. These people report directly to the Mayor. They can be from any political party, and are elected for four-year terms.

Philadelphia City Council is made up of seventeen members total. The city is divided into ten Districts, with one City Council Member representing each District. There are also seven At-Large Council Members, each elected by a citywide vote. No political party may hold all seven At-Large seats. The City Council drafts and enacts legislation that adds to or amends the City Code. Additionally the City Council plays a crucial role in shaping the city budget. The Mayor presents the draft budget to City Council for review and amendments by holding hearings and accepting public comment.

BOOST is in the 4th District in Philadelphia under the support of Councilmember Curtis Jones.
