What We do

The Philadelphia Region 3 office manages more than $4 billion in grant programs covering its five-state area of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, as well as the District of Columbia. The more than 65 employees in Region 3 are committed to superior public service and work closely with state and local governments, for-profit and non-profit organizations, and faith- and community-based organizations.

Our funding supports state and local programs such as Head Start, family assistance (welfare), child welfare, child care and child support. These programs promote the economic and social well-being of families, children, individuals and communities. We also support programs that address the needs, strengths and abilities of individuals with developmental disabilities, refugees and underserved populations, as well as healthy marriage and responsible fatherhood initiatives.
