"PHA is thrilled to receive the Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant," said PHA President and CEO Kelvin A. Jeremiah. "The Blumberg Apartments and the neighboring North Philadelphia community has been a neglected part of the city. PHA has made a commitment to revitalize this community but we cannot do it alone. With the support of HUD and the Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant, Mayor Michael A. Nutter, City Council President Darrell Clarke and development partners, PHA will be able to make significant strides to restore this part of the city and help eliminate blight and crime and provide new career and educational opportunities for residents."
