Bank of America has named the St. Pete Free Clinic and the University Area Community Development Corporation as 2022 Bank of America Neighborhood Builders awardees for their work in the community to remove economic barriers and advance economic opportunity.
With multi-year grant funding, the organization’s programs and services that address local access to healthcare, nutritious food, recovery housing and education will continue to expand, helping more neighbors in need.
SPFC and UACDC will each receive a $200,000 grant, over two years, as well as leadership training for the executive director, and an emerging leader, on topics ranging from increasing financial sustainability, human capital management and strategic storytelling, according to a statement.
In the Tampa Bay area, 47 nonprofits have been selected as Neighborhood Builders, with the bank investing $9,400,000 into these local organizations, since 2004. Organizations are selected by a committee comprised of community leaders and past Neighborhood Builders honorees.
