Tampa Union Station Gets Additional $400,000 Grant for Renovations

30 Jul 2023 5:54 PM | Jackson McQuigg (Administrator)

Thanks to a team effort by the City of Tampa and Friends of Tampa Union Station (founded by FCRP), Tampa Union Station is receiving an additional $400,000 in funds for renovations, this time thanks to a State of Florida Special Category Historic Preservation Grant. 

This is in addition to $2 million in funds raised from the City of Tampa Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency for station renovations. 

Renovations will begin later this year. It's been over 25 years since the station's 1990s restoration and reopening.

A grant application to the FRA's State-Federal Partnership for Intercity Passenger Rail Program is also pending.
