Building and reinforcing transportation and infrastructure systems that support sustainability and opportunity
Strengthening Communities Partnership (SCP) focuses private sector resources on targeted communities - Connellsville, Homewood, McKees Rocks, Mt. Oliver/Knoxville, Sharpsburg, Washington and Wilkinsburg - that have been left behind despite the transformation of the Pittsburgh region's economy, positioning these communities for greater success in the future.
Educators and companies are rising to the challenge in response to the report:
The Appalachia Partnership Initiative (API) invests in programs that prepare students and the workforce with the education and skills needed to stay and thrive in the tri-state region. Launched in 2014 with a $20 million commitment from Chevron Appalachia, LLC, API is a public-private partnership guided by the shared visions of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development, Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation, Chevron, and The Grable Foundation, with support from RAND Corporation as the project’s research and analysis partner. By the close of 2016, API projects attracted an additional $8 million from partners and other regional companies and non-profits that share this vision.
