Mayor Jim Kenney and Councilmember Cherelle Parker announced the award of a $10 million grant to carry out major renovations to the Olney Recreation Center. Made possible by the Philadelphia Beverage Tax and a signature initiative of Mayor Jim Kenney’s, Rebuild is committing hundreds of millions of dollars to restore parks, recreation centers, and libraries in neighborhoods across the City.

The grant was awarded to the Public Health Management Corporation (PHMC) organization, one of 20 pre-qualified non-profit organizations approved to lead Rebuild projects.

“Public Health Management Corporation applauds Mayor Kenney and Councilmember Parker for spearheading this important project. We are excited to partner with the community to transform Olney Rec into a world class community center worthy of the surrounding residents,” said Richard J. Cohen, President and CEO, Public Health Management Corporation. “Rebuild is a true community effort – and its members’ vision will drive this project toward the development of a space where youth and community members can play, be active, connect with one another, and participate in the programs delivered by outstanding community partners and organizations.”
