Philadelphia Urban Resources Partnership



The Urban Resources Partnership was a federal initiative of the late 1990s, which directed funds from the US Forest Service and US Natural Resources Conservation Service to support projects in urban communities. The initiative brought staff from federal agencies into direct contact with residents of low-income inner-city neighborhoods. A grant from the Philadelphia Urban Resources Partnership provided the funds for the Mill Creek Project from 1996-1998, including curriculum development and the summer programs of 1997 and 1998, which was a partnership between WPLP, Sulzberger Middle School, and Aspen Farms Community Garden.
