On Friday, February 14, 2020, the Community and Economic Development (CED) Department of the Urban Affairs Coalition (UAC) launched their new website — — a valuable one-stop-shop for community development needs for those in the Philadelphia region. is designed to be a comprehensive, easy to navigate resource to provide area residents with the tools to secure and expand their economic vitality. The site also provides an extensive overview of the services offered by the CED team and its expansive network. 

The site features a special interactive tool to help families and individuals in low-to-moderate income communities navigate the always complicated home buying process. Purchasing a home is an exhaustive – and at times overwhelming – process where consumers frequently can get lost in the amount of information scattered through various outlets and sources. 

The comprehensive “Housing H.U.B.” home-buying timeline, is a solution to that problem, and provides is a one-stop-shop for most home buying needs while helping to bring the reality of homeownership a few clicks closer to people in the Philadelphia community; and offers videos, useful resources, and affordable mortgage lending products from many local banks.

In addition to the Housing H.U.B, provides an opportunity for community members to receive free financial education, discover down-payment assistance products, and learn more about preventing housing foreclosure.

 “For many generations, purchasing a home was the single biggest driver to protecting and increasing generational wealth, and we envision this site to simplify that process to ensure ALL Philadelphians can protect and grow their assets in a more equitable manner,” said Jojy Varghese, CED director.

CED’s new website will be updated on a regular basis with relevant news, blogs, information and community. Visitors are encouraged to explore the website and sign up for communications from CED at: For more information about the Urban Affairs Committee, visit:
