Philadelphia's Health and Human Service Agenda: Priorities of the Nutter Administration

This document presents a summary of “Philadelphia's Health and Human Service Agenda: Priorities of the Nutter Administration,” a seminar sponsored by The Pew Fund for Health and Human Services. Held on April 11, 2008, the seminar was part of The Pew Charitable Trusts' information series called Programs Adjusting to a Changing Environment (PACE), created to improve nonprofits' ability to succeed by providing them with critical information, tools and technical assistance.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, who took office in January of 2008, ran on a platform of high performance and government accountability.  This PACE session, which was attended by representatives from a range of health and human service providers throughout the region, was designed to offer nonprofit leaders the opportunity to engage with key members of the Nutter administration and hear an early discussion of their departments' plans and priorities.  Many of the nonprofit organizations in attendance work in close partnership with city agencies; understanding the priorities of a new mayoral administration is of high importance.
