ST. PETERSBURG, FL - The City of St. Petersburg is expected to receive approximately $45 million from President Biden's American Rescue Plan Act. Mayor Rick Kriseman and his administration, with the support of City Council, have developed a series of workshops for community feedback to help prioritize which areas of impact receive funds.

The City has outlined eight areas of impact eligible for the funds: infrastructure, housing affordability, health equity, economic development, leisure services, public safety, transportation, and resilience & sustainability.

Each workshop will include opening statements and presentations outlining the state of affairs for each area of impact by subject matter experts, followed by breakout sessions where participants will rank the areas for funding prioritization.

Dates/locations for workshops include:
  • Monday, 7/26, 6-8 p.m. - Enoch Davis Center (1111 18th Ave. S.)
  • Tuesday, 7/27, 6-8 p.m. - JW Cate Rec Center (5801 22nd Ave. N.)
  • Wednesday, 7/28, 6-8 p.m. - Willis S. Johns Rec Center (6635 Dr. MLK Jr. St. N.)
A recording of the presentations and online form is available for those interested in participating but are unable to attend the in-person workshop dates. The online form will be available until the morning of Thursday, 7/29.

Feedback collected during these workshops will be aggregated and directly influence the ranking of priorities for receiving funds.
