Project User Request for Qualifications, Rebuild Philadelphia
Rebuild Philadelphia, or Rebuild, presents an opportune moment for triple bottom line businesses (people, planet, profit) in the Greater Philadelphia Area. It represents a $500M investment over the next seven years in our parks, playgrounds, recreation centers, libraries, and other public spaces.
Rebuild is looking for experienced and interested nonprofits to serve as Project Users. Project Users are pre-qualified nonprofits that will manage most Rebuild projects from community engagement through design and construction. Project Users will assemble teams to assist in completing projects.
To be eligible to serve as a Project User, interested local nonprofits must become pre-qualified through a Request for Qualifications process.
