Economic Development & Grants

The City of Pensacola recognizes the importance of pursuing available state and federal grant funding, ensuring that the city leverages taxpayer dollars to have the highest possible impact. Mayor D.C. Reeves created a new Economic and Neighborhood Development Director Position, along with a City Grants Office, to help the city more proactively pursue available grant funding.

Recent Grant Awards

The City of Pensacola is already seeing success through the Economic Development and Grants Office, particularly with two recent grant awards for American Magic to permanently relocate their headquarters to the Port of Pensacola. 

The permanent relocation of American Magic will create 170 jobs in the advanced manufacturing, engineering and design, and high-tech research and development sectors.
