About City of Philadelphia

The Office of Director of Finance was created by the Philadelphia Home Rule Charter, adopted by the electors of the City on April 17, 1951, to give the Mayor and the City government a principal officer responsible for the financial, accounting, and budgeting functions of the executive branch. The Director of Finance is thus the chief financial officer of the City and all powers and duties concerning finances, accounting, and budgeting in the executive branch are directly or indirectly the Director's. The Director of Finance is also the Chairman of the Board of Pensions and Retirements and an ex-officio member of the board of various quasi-governmental agencies, including the Pennsylvania Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority. The City of Philadelphia operates on a fiscal year between July 1st and June 30th.

The Grants Office, within the City’s central Budget Office, oversees certain major federal and state funding that the City receives; supports the pursuit of grants that align with the Mayor’s priorities; increases the federal, state, and philanthropic funding that is available to the City and to agencies and organizations that benefit the City; and supports City agencies and departments in their applications for grants and in their management of grant funding to ensure compliance with grant guidelines and fiscal policies.
