About Neighborhood Advisory Committee Program
The Neighborhood Advisory Committee (NAC) Program helps residents learn about City programs that could benefit them.
In 2018, PCDC became a Neighborhood Advisory Committee organization, joining a list of twenty-one other local community organizations helping residents learn about Philadelphia City programs and resources. PCDC was quick to make connections with City agencies which offer programs to help homeowners and tenants improve their housing conditions.
The Division of Housing and Community Development’s NAC team works with PCDC to provide technical assistance with engaging and helping Chinatown residents and community members in activities that support the City’s core objectives:
- Promoting neighborhood sustainability through programs addressing homelessness prevention, energy conservation education, housing preservation, neighborhood safety, and health and wellness
- Utilizing referral services for available housing counseling, workforce development and economic opportunities
- Cultivating youth mentoring and civic engagement
- Ensuring resident participation in City planning and development initiatives.
