Center City Proprietors Association

Special Group Grant, Spring 2008

Center City Proprietors Association is a membership organization for small businesses delivering resources and programs for their constituents.  They proposed to work with corridor managers from the Baltimore Avenue Business Association, the New Kensington CDC, the Girard Coalition, the Point Breeze CDC, and the People’s Emergency Center CDC.

These locations are outside its traditional borders of downtown and they have helped identify a number of new members who could benefit from the education programs and networking.  The CCPA matched the grant by discounting the true cost of membership.  This benefit will help businesses grown in a number of neighborhoods of Philadelphia, and diversify the CCPA’s membership, with hopes of perpetuating more awareness and greater programming.
