Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council secures $210,000 grant

January 31, 2020 - A $210,000 grant awarded to the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council was announced Friday in a release from Congressman Charlie Crist. The grant, awarded by the U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration, will go toward the development of a comprehensive economic development strategy for the Tampa Bay region.  The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council includes Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas counties. The strategy process will bring together the public and private sectors to create a roadmap for economic development that is both stronger and more diverse.  "Our fast growing region requires more and more collaboration at the county level because so many decisions, whether involving transportation or climate resiliency, are interrelated and need to be interconnected,” said Crist in the release. “This funding will allow the Regional Planning Council to create a roadmap for our economic future that maximizes our region’s strengths and prepares us for challenges down the road."
