City of St. Petersburg Holds Contest for Neighborhoods to Win Grant Funding

This holiday season, individuals in St. Pete are encouraged to donate to the City of St. Petersburg's Utility Assistance Program for a chance to win a $500 mini-grant for their neighborhood.

Those who donate will help their neighborhood while helping those in need. The Utility Assistance Program supports St. Pete utility customers who are having trouble with their utility costs. Funding to the program is based on donations and signing up to donate helps St. Pete families in need.

The top three neighborhoods with the most enrollment in the Utility Assistance Program from Nov. 1, 2021 to Jan. 1, 2022 will win a $500 mini-grant for neighborhood events or activities. Winners will be announced by February 2022.

How to Help
There are three easy, automatic giving options:

  • Utility Bill Round-Up: round up your bill to the nearest dollar and donate the difference - that comes to $0.99 or less per month and less than $12 per year!
  • Monthly donations of any amount
  • One-time donation of any amount
