The Diamond City Partnership (DCP) is Wilkes-Barre’s non profit
downtown management organization, serving as the caretaker of our community’s vision for Downtown Wilkes-Barre.
DCP was founded in 2001, when almost 1,000 citizens met in a series
of public visioning sessions to craft strategies for a better Downtown.
Today, DCP's work continues to improve
the economic vitality and livability of Downtown Wilkes-Barre. To that end, DCP
administers the Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Improvement District
(DWBBID) and Downtown Wilkes-Barre's Keystone Communities Main Street program, which together provide a range of place management services to the
properties and businesses of Downtown Wilkes-Barre. We invite you to
learn more about our work and our accomplishments to date.
How We Are Funded
DCP's operations are funded through DWBBID assessment revenue and
contributions from local non-profit institutions. Additional funds are
raised through event sponsorships, corporate contributions via Pennsylvania's Neighborhood Assistance Program, and charitable donations.
