The City of St. Petersburg has one of the oldest downtowns in the state of Florida and during the past forty years, rehabilitation and conservation of historic properties has shaped its economic development.
To maintain this distinctive quality of Downtown, in 2018 the City Council approved up to $5 million dollars to the Intown Redevelopment Plan budget to support the continued rehabilitation and conservation of 32 historic properties that are listed either on the National Register of Historic Place or the St. Petersburg Register of Historic Place or both. To identify specific properties deemed contributing to a St. Petersburg or National Register District, contact Planning and Development Services at 727.892.5451.
This funding will be allocated to eligible properties through a competitive grant process. The maximum one year award is $250,000 – not to exceed 50% of eligible project costs. All grants are reimbursable, meaning the project must be completed before the City will issue funding. Deadline for application submission is February 8, 2019 at 5pm.
For more information about the grant program, contact Rick D. Smith, Grant Administration Manager; firstname.lastname@example.org; 727.893.7106 or Derek Kilborn, Historic Preservation: email@example.com: 727.893.7872
