InfoResources West Philadelphia (InfoR) Open for Public Use

University of Pennsylvania


Joining leading community information networks such as Atlanta CIN, Cleveland Neighborhood Link, and St. Louis CIN, InfoR provides information for West Philadelphia neighborhood communities. It furnishes users with maps, socioeconomic data tables, and downloadable resource guides for grant writing, project development, and community empowerment purposes. Its web links enable users to better connect with West Philadelphia's community-based organizations and institutions.

InfoR is a data partnership project and serves as a central location to acquire information by zip code, census tract and neighborhood. It also serves users to better implement their community and economic development projects, housing studies, and policy research.

InfoR was developed collaboratively by the University of Pennsylvania's Department of City and Regional Planning with representatives of West Philadelphia community-based organizations, Center for Community Partnerships, HUD's Community Outreach Partnership Center, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Van Pelt Library, Penn's Cartographic Modeling Lab, Wharton GIS Lab, and the West Philadelphia Partnership.

We are actively incorporating links to organizations and resources for community development at the regional and national level. Please send us an e-mail so that your organization will be included in InfoR's web link.
