Our nation, state and city are experiencing very tough economic times
and we are grateful for the opportunity to pursue federal and state
stimulus dollars for projects that are designed to jump start the
economy, create jobs, reduce operating costs, improve the environment
and enhance the quality of life for our community. We are committed to
aggressively searching for all appropriate and available grant
opportunities that may result in additional federal stimulus dollars to
accomplish projects in the City of Tampa.
Our goal is to target stimulus funds toward key projects that can be
started quickly and provide an excellent return on investment for the
City. During this process, we will manage stimulus funds responsibly so
that we maintain close control on how the funds are being spent to
ensure accountability, transparency and verifiable results.
This website will allow us to quickly share information with you on
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), and will
provide gateway resources pointing to the availability of stimulus
funding opportunities and eligibility requirements. Please check back
often to learn what new opportunities are available and how the City of
Tampa is spending the federal and state stimulus funds we receive.
