St. Petersburg College is one of 28 nonprofit organizations to be selected to receive funding from the Forever 55 Legacy Microgrant Program, an initiative of the NFL and the Tampa Bay Super Bowl LV Host Committee.

The Host Committee announced the grants on Twitter on Tuesday.


The grants are part of a $2 million commitment by the NFL through the NFL Foundation and the Host Committee to create, support and implement long-lasting initiatives throughout the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. The legacy grant program was created to provide additional opportunities to deserving local nonprofit organizations that have missions, goals and programs that align with Forever 55’s six pillars: early childhood education, food insecurity, families, health and wellness, sustainability and systemic justice.

Recipients will use the funding for projects such as promoting healthy lifestyles for children, providing holiday meals to those in need, and building solid communication between youth and their community, a news release said.
