City of St. Petersburg Announces Fighting Chance Fund
Today, the City of St. Petersburg announced the creation of the Fighting Chance Fund. This emergency grant will be available to St. Pete residents who own and independently operate small businesses which have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 orders.
The fund is expected to provide critical support to about 1,000 restaurant, bar, retail, and service-based businesses and their more than 3,000 eligible employees. The City's goal is to help offset the significant, temporary loss of revenue during this global pandemic.
Program information is now live on the City of St. Petersburg's website. Applications will be available April 9. Technical support is available through The Greenhouse team until April 8.

Take our online survey!
StPete2050 is a city-wide conversation about where our city is going and what it can become over the next 30 years.
As part of the visioning process, the goal of the first online survey is to gather feedback about city priorities, strengths, opportunities, needed improvement, and your hopes for the city’s future.

The community is an important part of this process and we want to hear from as many people as possible, so be sure to share the survey with your friends, family and neighbors.
