Economy League receives $150,000 ‘world class’ grant

    The Economy League of Greater Philadelphia has received a $150,000 grant for its World Class Greater Philadelphia initiative — a movement to make Philadelphia a world-class city.

    The grant comes from the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Commerce Department, reports the Business Journal, to help the city achieve world-class status by 2026, the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

    We already know Sam Katz’s steps to becoming a world-class city. But what are your thoughts?

    Editor’s note: The EDA was first reported at being part of Pennsylvania’s Commerce Department. We regret the error.
