Rebuild Listening Session

May 31, 8:30 - 11:00 AM

SBN is hosting a MEMBERS-ONLY listening session with representatives from Rebuild Philadelphia to discuss the opportunities and resources for businesses interested in connecting with the program.

Funded in part by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax, Rebuilding Community Infrastructure (Rebuild) is a seven-year, $500 million investment in Philadelphia's neighborhood parks, libraries, recreation centers, and playgrounds with the goals of promoting equity and encouraging economic growth across the city.

Expanding economic opportunity is a key goal of Rebuild. The program is committed to supporting the growth of under-represented businesses and has declared that every contract will have ambitious goals for the participation of minority- and women-owned companies. Critical investments will be made to develop resources that address common challenges for under-represented business participation, including affordable access to capital as well as bonding and insurance support.

This is a free listening session for SBN members to learn more about the resources and opportunities that will be made available.

This program will be held in the Skyline Room on the 4th Floor of the Free Library at 1901 Vine Street in Philadelphia.

Doors will open at 8:30 for networking and refreshments (coffee and a light breakast). The program will begin promptly at 9:00AM.
