The Allegheny Conference's Strengthening Communities Partnership is a subset of its Strengthening Communities strategic priority. The program aims to positively impact the participating communities by concentrating private investment through tax credits purchased by businesses in the PA Department of Community and Economic Development Neighborhood Partnership Program. These investments are complemented with targeted, pro bono professional services that will make redevelopment projects happen in the neighborhoods. The goal is that more investment and resources will increase the capacity of local planners, developers and community development corporations to improve the economic vitality of their communities.
