Social Action Funding

Grant Overview

Social service agencies that provide homeless services and/or homeless prevention services can apply to take advantage of up to $50,000 in Social Action Funding grants from the City of St. Petersburg. 

Priority is given to agencies that provide services for:

  • Homeless families with minor or dependent children (ages 0-17 years)
  • Unaccompanied youth and those aging out of foster care
  • Individuals who are most vulnerable
  • Chronically homeless individuals and veterans
  • Victims of domestic violence

Agencies can take advantage of grants up to $50,000, depending upon eligibility and fund availability. Only one application per agency is permitted. However, an agency may submit additional applications for programs that provide any of the following critical services: storage units for personal items belonging to homeless individuals, call centers to assist persons with prevention of homelessness or to assist those who are already homeless, or discretionary funds for street outreach to homeless individuals and families.

In Fiscal Year 2022, the City awarded $525,867 in Social Action Funding grants to 11 organizations in the community.
