Harrisburg is a town with a rich history that spans more than 200 years. As the capital of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, we attract thousands of people to our city to live, work and play. Our city is poised for a great economic recovery, and there is a palpable optimism on our streets as we look forward to the next four years under new administration.

Our city is on the move. Our future will be even greater than our past!

Support Citywide Initiatives

  • MY BROTHER'S KEEPER

    In February 2014, President Obama launched the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) initiative to encourage communities to implement a coherent “cradle – to ‐ college ‐ and ‐ career strategy” for improving the life outcomes of all young people. The City of Harrisburg has accepted the challenge and chose to focus on: decreasing violence in our communities by ensuring young people are employed when out of school.

  • PROJECT HARRISBURG

    The City of Harrisburg asks for your financial support in establishing a fund to defend our common sense gun ordinances against the NRA. They prohibit discharging a weapon within the City limits except in cases of self-defense, carrying a firearm in a City park or playground, selling firearms during a declared state of emergency, possessing a weapon in public as an unsupervised child, and failing to report a gun lost or stolen.

    Support The Cause
